Grahic Jump Location
A typical impedance plot with steel blade of width 10 mm, height 0.1016 mm, and length 36.65 mm. The piezopatch used is PSI-5A-S4-ENH (thickness=0.1905 mm,Ep=66 GPa) and of length (L2−L1)=10.8 mm and L1=2.3 mm. For a lossless resonator, the minimum in the impedance plot represents the SC frequency or the series resonance frequency, whereas the maximum represents the OC frequency or the parallel resonance frequency. Corresponding SC and OC frequencies for the analytical, finite element model with and without a thin bonding layer are also provided for comparison.
