Title

Designing next generation flextensional transducers by stress engineering

Keywords and Phrases

Cymbal transducers; Donut devices; Wagon wheel devices

Abstract

"This doctoral research is focused on engineering the stress distribution in the metal endcaps and active piezoelectric disk of cymbal flextensional transducers to enhance piezoelectric response. This dissertation describes the design, fabrication, characterization and modeling of three novel transducers"--Abstract, leaf iv.
