Piezoceramic Tube

Application 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.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
