New piezoelectric mechanical dampers have been fabricated using composites of piezoelectric ceramic:polymer:carbon black. Significant vibrational damping was observed in the composites with a ceramic volume fraction more than 50%. Damping characteristics are controllable by changing the conductivity through the carbon black concentration.
