Transducer 3D - CAD


3D Transducer model (left) and maximum acoustic pressure field (right)

Model Description

Transducer design is one of the many applications that OnScale's core solvers are tailored for. From simple monolithic piezoelectric transducers to complex curved 1-3 piezocomposite array, OnScale can handle it.

As a demonstration, here is a 3D simulation of a simple transducer submerged in water.  Symmetry boundary conditions are used to simplify the CAD geometry and model size to reduce solve time. The transducer is driven with a piezoelectric load applied across the piezoceramic material.
