The 1-3-2 composite is made of 1-3 composite and ceramic base. Its effective properties are calculated based on the linear piezoelectric theory and uniform field theory. The influence of piezoelectric phase volume fraction and composite aspect (thickness/width) on resonance characteristic of square 1-3-2 piezoelectric composite plate has been researched. In addition, some 1-3-2 composite samples were fabricated by dice-fill technology. The resonance frequency of samples was investigated. The results show that the experiment agrees well with the calculation. The pure thickness resonance mode of 1-3-2 composite will be gained when the volume fraction of ceramic bottom is less than 30%; that of ceramic rods is in the range of 30%~80% and the ratio of thickness to width is less than 0.35.
