### Two-port Piezoelectric SAW Device

This tutorial shows how to model surface acoustic waves in time domain. The 3D modeling geometry represents a 128 degree YX-cut lithium niobate substrate. The SAW device has two ports. The metallic electrodes are modeled as perfect conductors using boundary conditions. The geometric dimensions such as size of substrate, the gap between the ports and the number of inter-digitated electrodes (IDTs) ...

### Stress-Optical Effects with Generalized Plane Strain

Planar photonic waveguides in silica (SiO2) have great potential for use in wavelength routing applications. The major problem with this type of waveguide is birefringence. Anisotropic refractive indices result in fundamental mode splitting and pulse broadening. The goal is to minimize birefringence effects by adapting materials and manufacturing processes. One source of birefringence is the use ...

### Fluid-Structure Interaction in a Network of Blood Vessels

This model refers to a portion of the vascular system of a young child - the upper part of the aorta artery. The blood vessels are embedded in a biological tissue (the cardiac muscle) and, during the flow of blood, pressure is applied to the internal surfaces producing deformation of the vessel walls. The complete analysis consists of two distinct but coupled procedures: a fluid-dynamics ...

### Acoustic-Structure Interaction

Liquid or gas acoustics coupled to structural objects such as membranes, plates or solids are important applications in many engineering fields. This model is a general demonstration of an acoustic fluid phenomenon in 3D that is coupled to a solid object. The walls of the solid object are impacted by the acoustic pressure. The frequency response from the solid is calculated, which is then fed ...

### Heating Circuit

Small heating circuits find use in many applications. For example, in manufacturing processes they heat up reactive fluids. The device used consists of an electrically resistive layer deposited on a glass plate. The layer causes Joule heating when a voltage is applied to the circuit. The layer’s properties determine the amount of heat produced. This multiphysics example simulates the ...

### Vibrating Beam in Fluid Flow

A classical flow pattern is the von Kármán vortex street that can form as fluid flows past an object. These vortices may induce vibrations in the object. This problem involves a fluid-structure interaction where the large deformation affect the flow path. The magnitude and the frequencies of the oscillation generated by the fluid around the structure is computed and compared with the values ...

### Piezoelectric Shear-Actuated Beam

The model performs a static analysis on a piezoelectric actuator based on the movement of a cantilever beam, using the Piezoelectric Devices predefined multiphysics interface. Inspired by work done by V. Piefort and A. Benjeddou, it models a sandwich beam using the shear mode of the piezoelectric material to deflect the tip.

### Piezoacoustic Transducer

A piezoelectric transducer can be used either to transform an electric current to an acoustic pressure field or, the opposite, to produce an electric current from an acoustic field. These devices are generally useful for applications that require the generation of sound in air and liquids. Examples of such applications include phased array microphones, ultrasound equipment, inkjet droplet ...

### Large Deformation Analysis of a Beam

This example studies the deflection of a cantilever beam undergoing very large deflections. In addition, a linearized buckling analysis of the structure is also performed. The model comes from Section 5.2 of NAFEMS Background to Finite Element Analysis of Geometric Non-linearity Benchmarks.
