    This paper describes the application of Finite Element (FE) approach for the development of piezoelectric accelerometers. An accelerometer is simulated using the FE approach as an example. Good agreement is achieved between simulated results and calibrated results. It is proved that the FE modeling can be effectively used to predict the specifications of the accelerometer, especially when modification of the accelerometer is required. The FE developing technology forms the bases of fast responsiveness and flexible customized design of piezoelectric accelerometers.
