Closed form analytical equations are important tools for predicting and optimizing the behavior of a piezoelectric microactuator for micropump applications. However, there is no reliable analytical solution to date to analyze the behavior of a circular piezoelectric microactuator for a valveless micropump. In this paper, a linear strain distribution is assumed across the thickness of the passive plate of the lead zirconate titanate (PZT) actuator given that the mechanical properties such as… CONTINUE READING
