How to model curved piezocomposite in OnScale lab designer mode? How apply electrode in it's thickness direction

  • Fpr piezoelectric materials, you would construct the curved geometry of your piezo material. You can then define an electrode as the interface between materials. Such an approach can be used for complex electrode forms including curved electrodes. You need to pay attention to the poling direction. These two examples, have two workflows for this.

    For more complex geometries, like those of composites, it might be more convenient to build your model on a curved grid. Subsequent operations remain unchanged from the case with an uncurved composite. Essentially, you build the composite in the same way, but on a curved grid instead. Please see this example.
