Among other applications piezoelectric transducers are widely used for acoustic wave generation and as resonators. These applications require goals in the transducer design such as high electromechanical energy conversion for a certain transducer vibration mode, specified resonance frequencies and narrowband or broadband response. In this work, we have proposed a method for designing piezoelectric transducers that tries to obtain these characteristics, based upon topology optimization… CONTINUE READING
