[en] In this paper advanced multi-physics simulations of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) are used to investigate their dynamic behaviour. The strong coupled electro-mechanical Finite Element (FE) formulation is used to model the electro-mechanical interactions and to perform modal and transient analysis taking into account large deformation e®ects. The application examples simulate two micro-resonators consisting in a clamped-clamped beam suspended over a substrate (the lower electrode). When a voltage is applied between the beam and the substrate, electrostatic forces appear which force the beam to bend. When the applied voltage is increased up to the pull-in limit, the electrostatic force becomes dominant and the plates stick together.
The pull-in voltage is an essential design parameters in capacitive micro-systems. Here we also de¯ne a new design parameter describing the limit dynamic behaviour, namely the dynamic pull-in voltage.
