Applications of ATILA FEM Software to Smart Materials

ATILA Finite Element Method (FEM) software facilitates the modelling and analysis of applications using piezoelectric, magnetostrictor and shape memory materials. It allows entire designs to be constructed, refined and optimized before production begins. Through a range of instructive case studies, Applications of ATILA FEM software to smart materials provides an indispensable guide to the use of this software in the design of effective products. Part one provides an introduction to ATILA FEM software, beginning with an overview of the software code. New capabilities and loss integration are discussed, before part two goes on to present case studies of finite element modelling using ATILA. The use of ATILA in finite element analysis, piezoelectric polarization, time domain analysis of piezoelectric devices and the design of ultrasonic motors is considered, before piezo-composite and photonic crystal applications are reviewed. The behaviour of piezoelectric single crystals for sonar and thermal analysis in piezoelectric and magnetostrictive materials is also discussed, before a final reflection on the use of ATILA in modelling the damping of piezoelectric structures and the behaviour of single crystal devices. With its distinguished editors and international team of expert contributors, Applications of ATILA FEM software to smart materials is a key reference work for all those involved in the research, design, development and application of smart materials, including electrical and mechanical engineers, academics and scientists working in piezoelectrics, magenetostrictors and shape memory materials.

The finite element method and its application to smart transducer systems are introduced in this chapter. The fundamentals of finite element analysis are introduced first. Then, the section ‘Defining the equations for the problem’ treats how to integrate the piezoelectric constitutive equations, and ‘Application of the finite element method’ describes the meshing. The last section ‘FEM simulation examples’ introduces six cases; multilayer actuator, Π-type linear ultrasonic motor, windmill ultrasonic motor, metal tube ultrasonic motor, piezoelectric transformer, and ‘cymbal’ underwater transducer,

For underwater applications and manufacture of sonar for autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV), large areas of piezoelectric materials with very good electromechanical properties are often needed. Piezoelectric single crystals (typically the compositions PMN-PT or PZN-PT) are high-performance materials (high yields), but are difficult to manufacture in large areas while maintaining homogeneous properties. This study on the behavior of piezoelectric single crystals will be conducted with the use of a finite-element code (ATILA) which was developed at ISEN in collaboration with the

Piezoelectric ultrasonic motors offer many advantages such as high retention being very controllable, high torque at low speed, light weight, simple structure and no electromagnetic field induction compared with the conventional electromagnetic motors. These advantages have helped to expand the application fields where precise position control and rotational/linear motions can be utilized. One of the most remarkable features of the compact ultrasonic motor is that it has higher design flexibility compared with that of the conventional electromagnetic motors whose

Periodic structures have attracted considerable interest over the past three decades. Thus, passive structures with 1D or 2D periodicity are in standard use in underwater acoustics. Moreover doubly periodic active structures, such as 1–3 piezocomposite materials made of parallel piezoelectric bars embedded in a passive matrix, are also of great interest for mine hunting, underwater or medical ultrasonic imaging. In this chapter, a brief presentation of passive and active periodic structures is described. Then, the generic model developed for periodic studies

Finite element analysis can be applied to smart structures with piezoelectric or magnetostrictive materials rather successfully when neither the applying electric field nor the generating AC strain is very large and when the linear relation can be supposed in the strain vs electric field or the strain vs stress. However, further improvement in the FEM algorithm is required for high field or high power drive of the piezoelectric system, where nonlinear and hysteretic characteristics should be taken into account, as

Phononic crystals (PCs) are usually defined as artificial materials made of periodic arrangement of scatterers embedded in a matrix. The band structure of PCs may present under certain conditions absolute band gaps: they display frequency ranges in which waves cannot propagate. This fact is analogous to photonic band gaps for electromagnetic waves. Therefore, such systems can be applied as noise and vibration isolation, acoustic wave guiding, acoustic filters, etc. Moreover, band structures of PCs may exhibit dispersion curves with a

Ever notice that—in spite of their pervasiveness—designing web applications is still challenging? While their benefits motivate their creation, there are no well-established guidelines for design. This often results in inconsistent behaviors and appearances, even among web applications created by the same company. Design patterns for web applications, similar in concept to those for web sites and software design, offer an effective solution. In Web Application Design Patterns, Pawan Vora documents design patterns for web applications by not only
