A Piezoceramic Tube
Model ID: 37
This example involves a static 2D axisymmetric analysis of a piezoelectric actuator using the Piezoelectric Devices physics interface. It models a radially polarized piezoelectric tube, as described by S. Peelamedu and co-authors. An application area where radially polarized tubes are employed is in nozzles for fluid control in inkjet printers.
|Induced electric potential within the deformed tube due to an internal pressure of 0.1 MPa (case 1, the direct piezoelectric effect).|
