Piezoelectric actuators: Why cubic?

An actual cubic actuator <br>Copyright : TUT<br><br>

Here, Tomoaki Mashimo and Shigeki Toyama analyzed the vibrational behavior of cubic stators based on an energy method, which distinguishes components of mechanical energy.

By changing the design of stators—especially the length in the direction of the through-hole axis—the researchers clarified how the vibrational modes are in accordance at one equal frequency in cubic shape.

The energy method described in this paper showed that the mechanical energy of two specific vibrational modes is in equilibrium. The shape for which the stator achieves equilibrium energy was found to be a cube.

This approach should be useful for not only studies on vibration, but also for design the stators with an easy-to-use modal analysis method.
