Abstract
This paper presents a numerical modeling technique of piezoelectric transducers by taking into account wave radiation and scattering. It is based on the finite element modeling. Coupling problems between piezoelectric and elastic materials as well as fluid and structure systems associated with the modeling of piezoelectric underwater acoustic sensors are formulated. In the finite element modeling of unbounded acoustic fluid, IWEE (Infinite Wave Envelop Element) is adopted to take into account the infinite domain. The IWEE code is added to an in-house finite element program, and commercial pre and post-processor are used for mesh generation and to see the output. The validation of the numerical modeling is proved through an example, and scattering and radiation analysis of Tonpilz transducer is performed. The scattered wave on the sensor is calculated, and the sensor response, so called RVS (Receiving Voltage Sensitivity) is predicted.
