Finite element analysis of circular quartz resonators using scalar differential equation and COMSOL

Abstract

We study free vibrations of a circular AT-cut quartz resonator using the two-dimensional scalar differential equation by Tiersten and Smythe in conjunction with COMSOL. Resonant frequencies and mode shapes are obtained and compared with available experimental results as well as available analytical solutions of the scalar equation. The accuracy of various… (More)
