Special Issues
Special Issue on New Trends in Ultrasonic Motor, Ultrasonic Transducer, and Piezoelectric Actuator Research
Submission Date: 2017-05-26

This special issue shall comprise the state-of-the-art, latest advances and future trends in the field of vibration application. It is well known that the existence of vibration implies the existence of energy, which can be used for many different purposes. For example, the resonant vibration of an elastic body can be used as an actuator by frictional coupling. On the other hand, ultrasonic transducers are widely used in fields of testing, cleaning, welding, and machining. Furthermore, the vibration present in the natural environment can be collected by a harvester to produce electric energy. The main objective of this special issue is to collect ideas from the global community for sharing the new trends in ultrasonic motor, ultrasonic transducer, and piezoelectric actuator. Recent advances and trends in mathematical modeling, computer simulation, optimization techniques, experimental studies, and new applications of vibration are very welcome. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following: Ultrasonic motors-new operating principles and new applications Excitation methods for the resonant vibrations of transducers Designs of ultrasonic transducers using hybrid vibrations and the new applications New trends in transient vibration problem of piezoelectric actuator Vibration based methods for energy harvesting Recent advances in ultrasonic vibration-aided machining: drilling, turning, grinding, and welding Authors can submit their manuscripts through the Manuscript Tracking System at Manuscript Due Friday, 26 May 2017 First Round of Reviews Friday, 18 August 2017 Publication Date Friday, 13 October 2017
