Paper Abstract

Torsional vibrations of circular tubes, rods, rings, and disks are widely used as operation modes of acoustic wave transducers in various piezoelectric devices. In this paper, a piezoelectric disk with spiral interdigitated electrodes is proposed to generate in-plane torsion in a simple and effective manner. Design and working principle of the torsional transducer are introduced. Vibration characteristics of the transducer with a constant spiral angle are studied. A simplified model is established to investigate the basic dynamic characteristics of torsional vibration accompanying with radial vibration. Electric admittance, resonant frequencies, and mode shapes with different boundary conditions are calculated. Resonant frequencies as functions of several structural parameters are discussed.
