Multiobjective Optimal Design of Underwater Acoustic Projector with Porous Piezocomposite Active Elements
ABSTRACT
This paper concerns the optimization problem for multilayered ultrasonic transducer with active porous piezoelectric layer. The dependences of the effective moduli for porous piezoelectric material on porosity have been previously obtained and allowed to decrease the number of design variables. The multiobjective optimization problem based on the Pareto-frontier calculation has been solved using the live-link of finite-element (FE) package Comsol Multiphysics with MATLAB.
