FEMP
Finite Element Modeling of Piezoelectric structures
by Jan Kocbach

The Finite Element (FE) program
FEMP (Finite Element Modeling of Piezoelectric structures)
is a FE program for the modeling of piezoelectric transducers,
including the radiation into a fluid medium. The
piezoelectric part of the region of analysis is modeled
using piezoelectric finite elements,
the mechanical part of the region of analysis is modeled
using mechanical finite elements, and the
fluid part of the region of analysis is modeled
using a combination of fluid finite and fluid infinite elements.
The infinite elements are of AstleyLeis type (see E.g. Ref. [1]), also
called infinite wave envelope elements of variable order.
