World Health Organization (WHO) defined health as being “a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”. Physical factors (noise, vibration, electromagnetic fields, ionized radiation, etc.) may have a negative influence on both the environment and the health of population. Piezoelectric sensors have been employed in different fields such as medical analysis, environmental monitoring, etc.

The object of the research is piezoelectric sensors for environmental monitoring and their simulation.

Currently, there are no reliable and valid methods of constructing of mathematical models of piezoelectric transducers, which could be used as a theoretical basis for calculating characteristics and parameters of this class of functional elements of modern piezoelectronics. In most papers the described methods of transformers simulation are mostly based on the use of equivalent electrical circuits and it does not allow analysing stress-strain state of solids with piezoelectric effects. The final goal of mathematical modelling of vibrating piezoelectric elements is a qualitative and quantitative description of characteristics and parameters of existing electrical and elastic fields.

Physical processes in piezoelectric transducers which occur using axially symmetric radial oscillations of piezoceramic disk are considered.

Keywords: environmental monitoring, physical pollution, mathematical simulation, piezoelectric transducer.
