Abstract
Recent researches on dynamic behavior of micro cantilevers indicate that the flexural resonance frequencies of piezoelectric microcantilever sensors (PEMS) could be influenced by air in which it immersed as a result of viscous damping effect, which reduces the accuracy of the PEMS. A detailed theoretical analysis of the frequency response of a PEM immersed in air and excited by an arbitrary driving force is presented in this paper, in which the couple stress theory (Cosserat theory) is introduced to the dynamic deflection function of a PEM to explain the size effect. Numerical results have shown a good agreement with the experiments. Methods for prediction of dynamic characteristics of long beam-like micro components could be easily derived based on the presented theory, which is of value to users and designers of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).
