If you want to learn about modeling piezoelectric fans, then tune into this webinar with Akshat Agarwal from the Efficient Energy Transfer group at Nokia Bell Labs.
As a technology promising to fill the gap between natural and forced convection heat sinks, piezoelectric fans create airflow through an oscillating motion induced by an applied AC voltage. In this webinar, we will discuss the use of the COMSOL Multiphysics® software to investigate the 3D flow field created by an oscillating cantilever beam immersed in ambient air. The application of such technology includes electronics cooling as well as the study of the wings of a flapping bird or UAV. The setup and techniques used to simplify the mathematical model and postprocessing methods will be discussed.
You can ask questions at the end of the webinar during the Q&A session.
