Abstract
Describes how to use the computer program PATMAV, Version 1.0, developed at Defence Research Establishment Atlantic (DREA). PATMAV translates finite element models created with the finite element model generation software PATRAN, to a form ready for analysis by the finite element analysis code, MAVART3D. MAVART3D is used to analyze the vibrations of piezoelectric sonar transducers. The combination of PATRAN, PATMAV, and MAVART3D permits the creation and analysis of finite element models of sonar transducers using a graphics workstation, with a complete set of tools for model creation, verification and visualization.
