Piezo1D models the behavior of 1-dimensional electromechanical devices to predict performance using Mason's and the KLM Model.
Simple electromechanical systems under certain conditions can be modeled in 1-dimension to yield frequency-dependent characteristics of the device such as input impedance, insertion loss, power factor, velocities and stress at the boundaries of layers of the device, and operating parameters such as the device’s pulse-echo behavior.
Piezo1D uses Mason's or the KLM network model to analyze a 1-dimensional electromechanical device. In principle any number of piezoelectric and elastic layers can be combined in any order to create models of any device operating in 1-dimension. Using an intuitive user interface, even complex models can be constructed in minutes. Once the structure of the model is defined, properties of the layers can be adjusted while the impact of these changes is immediately reflected in the computed outputs.

This is a discussion of technical features of Piezo1D
The following tutorials provide step-by-step instructions for creating and analyzing a model with Piezo1D;
A license to use Piezo1D can be purchased which provides unlimited updates for one year. Within that year, 1-4 additional years of unlimited updates can be purchased. If updates are allowed to expire, an upgrade can be purchased. A licensed copy of Piezo1D can continue be used outside of the update period. In this case you would not be entitled to install new updates until an upgrade is purchased. Any valid Piezo1D license for any Piezo1D version is entitled to purchase an upgrade. See the following for details. All prices are in US dollars:
