Quick video showing how to use the Post Processor to analyse and visualise the output data from PZFlex models.
The video demonstrates how to customise the interface in Analyst mode and features of the new Interactive Graphics window
Setting up and running a simulation in PZFlex can be quick and easy in the new PZFlex Designer Mode. The video uses a Contour Mode Resonator CAD model to demonstrate the PZFlex Workflow from selecting materials, applying loads to analysing your results.
With our highly efficient solvers, full 3D models can be simulated in short time frames to allow your full design to be evaluated without assumptions and simplifications. Here is a quick example of 3D transducer stimulated with a pulse and ringing down in an open air environment.
A typical set up for evaluating flow in a pipe. The video shows the ease of setting up a complex pipe geometry for a transient simulation by following the PZFlex workflow.
PZFlex is proud to announce the launch of PZFlex 2017, the latest release of the market-leading piezoelectric and ultrasound simulation package. PZFlex 2017 is the first choice for engineers designing piezoelectric devices like MEMS fingerprint sensors, FBARs and SAWs for RF Filters, medical imaging systems using PMUTs and CMUTs, 4D-imaging sensor heads and high-intensity focused ultrasound transducers. Like previous generations …
Question and Answers Q: Why does the 1D model take >10s? One would assume that the computational effort is comparable to a typical Mason model (transmission line based), which runs in milliseconds. A: An analytical method like Mason’s or KLM is always going to be quicker than FEA for the simple problems which they are designed. That said, much of …
Optimization is a powerful tool, allowing engineers to discover better designs quickly and efficiently. Here, we look at 5 tips to ensure that your optimization studies yield the best possible results in a short timeframe. Tip #1: Simplify the simulation as much as possible In order to explore a large number of designs it’s important that the simulations are as …
First few cycles of a pentagonal shaped FBAR. The video shows surface velocity, like you’d see on a laser vibrometer in the lab. Full simulation runs for 3,000 cycles and builds up a full spectral analysis of the device from a single run! This design was Optimized using Matlab’s Genetic Algorithm via FlexConnect.
This simple 2D model of a steel block with a void region shows how simple the setup process can be using the new PZFlex Designer Mode. The full workflow from model import to post processing outputs is demonstrated in the short video.
