Assemblies and subassemblies based on a piezoelectric effect, in construction and operation of machines, have been used for decades. Among important examples of the piezoelectric elements can be distinguish non-destructive testing methods of a various objects, such as an ultrasonic diagnostic technique, in which a piezoelectric film is glued on a surface of a tested object. In this article an impact of these phenomena on the dynamic characteristics of a modeled system will be examined. It is a base for a study of complex piezoelectric plates by other methods. Moreover, a damping of the systems in a single piezoelectric plate will be considered.
