Effect of Boundary Conditions on the Natural Frequencies and Vibration Modes of Piezoelectric Plates with Radially Cut Electrodes


The general solution to the problem of the nonaxisymmetric electromechanical vibrations of a piezoceramic ring plate is found. The effect of boundary conditions (clamped edge–free edge, free edge–clamped edge, free edge–free edge) on the natural frequency spectra (for the first circumferential harmonics) of plates with radially cut electrode coating is numerically analyzed
