Theoretical and experimental research has been conducted into the mechanisms of generation of electric fields under elastic shock excitation of heterogeneous nonmetallic materials that contain two types of mechanoelectric transductions, viz., double electrical layers at interphase boundaries and piezoelectric inclusions. Using the example of electrical responses from samples of heavy- and light-weight concretes and based on numerical modeling results, prospects are shown for using this phenomenon in nondestructive testing of heterogeneous nonmetallic materials that do not contain piezoelectric inclusions, e.g., layered and reinforced ones.
