Pages: 330 - 333

Keywords: finite element methods, rectangular THUNDER, piezoceramic

The use of a quarter-symmetry three-dimensional finite element analysis model in predicting the behavior of the laminated piezoceramic material device known as THUNDER actuators is investigated. The analyses simulating the fabrication process and subsequ
