Optimizing FBAR Design with FEA using PZFlex – Recording

Gerry Harvey Webinars 0 Comments

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 …

Advanced NDE Simulation Using PZFlex

Kevin Chan Case Studies 0 Comments

Simulation of ultrasonic inspection has been a key tool in the NDE industry for over 40 years, for example ray-tracing models helped engineers safely build and maintain the last generation of nuclear power plants in the 1980’s. Fast, realistic and accurate simulation offers tremendous value in accelerating the adoption of new inspection methods for new components, infrastructure and materials that …

Tonpilz Transducer Simulations

Gerry Harvey Examples 0 Comments

Tonpilz devices are able to achieve a combination of low frequency and high sensitivity in a compact footprint which makes them ideal as projectors for sonar applications. PZFlex can accept models from CAD as well as generating models from simple wizards which makes modeling a single or a multi stack array very straight-forward. With our ability to run multi-million element …
