Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) have rapidly progressed during the last decade and their applications have vastly widened from the initial well-established ones. Accordingly, design and optimization of these systems require fast, efficient and adequate tools.

Meanwhile, the finite element method (FEM) has established itself as the state-of-the-art tool in industrial applications throughout the field of engineering. However, as MEMS devices are transducing elements coupling multiple energy domains and they often exhibit very complex geometrical structures, FEM models of MEMS devices usually have very high numbers of degrees of freedom (DOF). These models are often unfeasible due to limitations in memory, accuracy or execution time.

A mathematical method named model order reduction (MOR) tackles this issue by finding models with reduced DOF that approximate the behavior of the original systems and preserve their properties such as stability, passivity or structure.

This track focuses on simulation and compact modelling of MEMS devices and mechantronic systems. Authors are invited to submit their contributions in any topics relating to:

  • Modelling of MEMS devices

  • Finite Element Method

  • Model Order Reduction

  • Topology and Structural Optimization
