Piezoelectric Accelerometers Modification Based on the Finite Element Method

Bin Liu, B. Kriegbaum

    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    The paper describes the modification of piezoelectric accelerometers using a Finite Element (FE) method. Brüel & Kjær Accelerometer Type 8325 is chosen as an example to illustrate the advanced accelerometer development procedure. The deviation between the measurement and FE simulation results of Type 8325 is below 6%. It is proved that the specifications of the accelerometer can be effectively predicted using the FE method, especially when modifications of the accelerometer are required.
