Multiphysics Coupling Analysis of MEMS Sandwich Structures

A new method of active natural frequency tuning has been demonstrated by employing residual stress variation resulting from temperature changing in the layers. A sandwich structure has been modeled and the thermal-electro-mechanical coupling is analyzed by the FEA-simulation tool, ANSYS. This kind of structures can be used for resonant sensors, frequency-selective MEMS etc.
