Short summary
In this paper we show that for radially symmetric piezoceramic disks non-zero sensitivity of the electrical impedance to the whole material parameter set can be computed using a system of 3-ring electrodes and non-uniform electrical excitation. We formulate an optimisation problem for increasing this sensitivity. However, the system displays multiple optimal configurations for the radii of said ring electrodes and we have shown some results from optimising such configurations using simulations.
