Mass-produced MEMS gyroscopes provide affordable options for measuring angular velocity in applications such as yaw-rate sensors for skid control in automobile systems. We can test these designs and optimize their setup for mechanical systems using simulation. These two elements are composed of piezoelectric materials. In the case of the model discussed here, the material is quartz. A rate gyroscope senses the rotational motion and angular velocity of a system. Two resonant modes are used: Drive mode Sense mode These two modes serve as the driving and sensing aspects of the gyroscope.

To this end, the MEMS Module provides predefined user interfaces with associated modeling tools, referred comeol as physics interfaces, for a variety of coupled physics, including electromagnetic-structure, thermal-structure, or fluid-structure interactions.
MEMS Module Prestressed Micromirror One method of creating spring-like structures or inducing curvature in thin structures is to plate them to substrates that are under the influence of residual stresses.
That makes microscopic thermal actuators fast enough to be useful on the microscale, although thermal actuators are typically slower than capacitive or piezoelectric actuators.

The Fluid-Structure Interaction FSI multiphysics interface combines fluid flow with solid mechanics to capture the interaction between the fluid and the solid structure. A perfectly matched layer is used to represent the essentially One method of creating spring-like structures or inducing curvature in thin structures is to plate them to substrates that are under the influence of residual stresses.
When COMSOL compiles the equations, the complex couplings generated by these user-defined expressions are automatically included in the equation system. Electrostatic forces scale favorably as the device dimensions are reduced, a fact frequently leveraged in MEMS. Best-in-class piezoelectric and piezoresistive modeling tools allow for simulations where composite piezo-elastic-dielectric materials can be combined in any imaginable configuration.
This 2D axisymmetry model uses a parametric sweep of voltage to The small size of the device results in a Tutoril resonant frequency even for a simple flexural mode. The elastic cantilever beam is one of the elementary structures used in MEMS designs.
One of the important properties of the AT cut is that the resonant frequency of the crystal is temperature independent to first order. Simulation of Microelectromechanical Systems The design and modeling of microelectromechanical systems MEMS is mesm unique engineering discipline.

Quartz frequency references can be considered the highest volume Tutroial component currently in production — over 1 billion devices are manufactured per year.
Every business and every simulation need is different. You can extend the material models with thermal expansion, comwol, and initial stress and strain features. The reverse piezoelectric tutoril is used to drive an in-plane tuning fork mode.
