Optimization of design parameter for tonpilz type transducers

Çiçek, Merve
Design of a Tonpilz type transducer is a complex process involving many design parameters which may affect each other. Therefore, an optimum design is a difficult task to reach. The purpose of this study is to optimize design parameters of Tonpilz type transducers. The study involves three different transducer modeling techniques. Each of these models is explained and benchmarked with the help of published experimental data. The simplest model is exploited to produce initial data for unknown design parameters. Optimization of design parameters are performed with the other two models. Results regarding to the design parameters before and after optimization process are compared. A design parameter set which satisfies the design requirements with maximum output power is obtained by the Finite Element Method.


Accurate equivalent models of sandwich laminates with honeycomb core and composite face sheets via optimization involving modal behavior
Cinar, Okan; Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve; Kayran, Altan (2017-03-01)
An approach is introduced for determining accurate two-dimensional equivalent laminated models of sandwich laminates with honeycomb core and composite facesheets by optimization involving modal behavior. The approach relies on minimizing the objective function which is defined as the sum of the square of the differences between the natural frequencies of the honeycomb sandwich laminate estimated by the finite element analysis of the 3D detailed model with the actual honeycomb core geometry and by the 2D equ...

We consider a fully discrete, efficient algorithm for magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow that is based on the Elsasser variable formulation and a timestepping scheme that decouples the MHD system but still provides unconditional stability with respect to the timestep. We prove stability and optimal convergence of the scheme, and also connect the scheme to one based on handling each decoupled system with a penalty-projection method. Numerical experiments are given which verify all predicted convergence rates of ...
Investigation of nonplanar perfectly matched absorbers for finite-element mesh truncation
Kuzuoğlu, Mustafa (1997-03-01)
In this paper, we present a detailed theoretical and numerical investigation of the perfectly matched layer (PML) concept as applied to the problem of mesh truncation in the finite-element method (FEM), We show that it is possible to extend the Cartesian PML concepts involving half-spaces to cylindrical and spherical geometries appropriate for closed boundaries in two and three dimensions by defining lossy anisotropic layers in the relevant coordinate systems, By using the method of separation of variables,...

Köprülerde kullanılan deprem izolatörleri, genellikle çift doğrusal yük-deplasman eğrileriyle modellenir. Bu çalışmada, deprem izolatörlerinde oluşan yük ve deplasmanı asgariye indirmek için, sismik izolasyon sistemini tanımlayan parametrelerden karakteristik mukavemetin optimizasyonunun yapılması hedeflenmiştir. Bu amaçla, öncelikle deprem izolatörlerinin optimum deplasman ve kuvvet değerlerini etkileyen parametreler belirlenmiştir. Bu çalışmada göz önüne alınan parametreler, köprü alt yapı rijitliği, sönü...
Optimization of Power Conversion Efficiency in Threshold Self-Compensated UHF Rectifiers With Charge Conservation Principle
Gharehbaghi, Kaveh; KOÇER, FATİH; Külah, Haluk (2017-09-01)
This paper presents a compact model for threshold self-compensated rectifiers that can be used to optimize circuit parameters early in the design phase instead of time-consuming transient simulations. A design procedure is presented for finding the optimum aspect ratio of transistors used in the converter and number of rectifying stages to achieve the maximum power conversion efficiency. In the presented analysis, the relation between the power conversion efficiency and the load current over the variation o...
