Simulating Full 3D Transducer

A transducer is a device that converts one form of energy into another and vice verse. By applying an electrical charge to the piezoelectric material of the transducer it causes the material to vibrate these vibrations generate an ultrasonic pulse.

With our highly efficient solvers, full 3D models can be simulated in short time frames to allow full designs to be evaluated without assumptions and simplifications.

In this video we demonstrate an electro-mechanical simulation of a 3D transducer residing in a water load. The resonant frequency of the device is analysed through FFTs and mode shapes.
