A 300 kHz High-Frequency Underwater Transducer
A new type of piezoelectric composite ultrasonic transducer with high frequency in radial vibration is studied. A high-frequency acoustic transducer has been designed and prepared with pzt-5-type piezoelectric ceramic cylinder. When the piezoelectric ceramic cylinder vibrates along the direction of its radial direction, the working frequency is high. It is composed of a piezoelectric ceramic tube and a steel bracket which is inserted in the inner of the ceramic tube. Use the finite element method by ANSYS for analyzing the radial vibration of a piezoelectric tube. On that basis, through managing ANSYS simulation the vibration mode of transducer system is obtained, and analyzed the working frequency of transducer. According to the simulation, the high-frequency cylindrical acoustic transducer has been produced. Comparing the products and the traditional cylindrical transducers, the products haven’t only a good all-round circle directional, but it also has a high working frequency (300 kHz).
