Modeling of dynamic processes in micromechanical inertial sensors and their components using specialized software


Software packages which can be used for the creation of specialized software to investigate the dynamics of micromechanical inertial sensors have been developed. These software packages take full account of the Timoshenko theory and the influence of the gyroscopic effect. The possibility of using the developed software is shown using modeling of a superminiature micromechanical gyro and a micromechanical gyro with a gimbal sensing element as an example. The use of specialized software guarantees the possibility of implementing the required functionality as well as full control of the implementation of the algorithms and visualization of the results at every stage of the investigation. The development and using of specialized software can help to achieve significant reduction of requirements imposed upon the computing resources and calculation time in comparison with universal software of finite-element modeling.
