AN INFLUENCE OF THE d311 EFFECT ON THE BEHAVIOR OF THE CANTILEVER BEAM-SHAPED PIEZOELECTRIC ACTIVATOR MADE OF TWO LAYERS OF PVDF WITH INVERSE POLARITY

Print

ABSTRACT

In the present work an example of the numerical modeling of electro-mechanical coupling of the activator in the form of cantilever beam made of two layers PVDF subjected to an inverse polarity is described. Calculations were done for static deflections at the selected voltage levels and for modal analysis with an included and excluded piezoelectric effect. The effect of active material on the behavior of the beam was examined. In order to validate the model, results of the static calculation were compared with the strict analytical solution and the results presented by other authors.
