COMSOL Conference 2014

Piezoelectric Devices

Piezoelectric devices such as rotating beams, ultrasonic transducers, and energy harvesting systems all rely on materials that can convert mechanical stress to electrical charge or its inverse. The presentations, posters, and papers on this page describe examples of piezoelectric multiphysics simulations.
