Abstract:
Modeling plays an essential role in our research on new inkjet technologies. Structural modeling with Ansys includes piezo-electricity. Acoustic modeling in Ansys and Matlab involves fluid-structure interaction. CFD modeling with Flow3D includes wall-flexibility and free surface flow with surface tension. Added to our measurements this reveals the phenomena involved in our main goal: firing droplets of ink at a very high rate with any desired shape, velocity, dimension and a reliability as high as possible.
