Paper Abstract

Terfenol-D resonance transducer has high energy-density and high vibration amplitude. These features make them good selection for using in different applications such as liquid atomizers and sonar transducers. Operating mode of the Terfenol- D transducer plays an important role in efficiency of it. It can also change some parameters of the transducer such as quality factor. In this paper, experimental comparative study between first and second longitudinal modes of vibration in the Terfenol-D transducer is presented. It contains the mechanical quality factor, band with frequency and also effect of changing Young modulus in resonance frequency and mode shape. For this purpose, a resonance transducer for working in 3 kHz in first mode and 8.25 kHz in second mode has been designed and fabricated. In design procedure, preload mechanism location is considered as nodes. Quality factor and bandwidth is calculated experimentally and resonance frequency and mode shape has been calculated both with analytical method and ANSYS12 FEM commercial software. Results show that higher quality factor in the second mode shape and this mode shows lower sensitivity with Young modulus .
