SolidWorks Simulation - Piezoelectric

Question asked by Willian Afonso on Feb 26, 2016


Is it possible, at solidworks, simulate in frequency mode, piezoelectric materials?

As you know, this kind of materials, when submitted to an electric field, they deform and, by the other hand, they produce an electric tension when they are deformed. So, Hooke’s law isn’t enough to define the behavior of the material. Normally, for this materials, we would have to introduce in the program the stiffness matrix, piezoelectric matrix and other electrical properties.
