Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


An efficient algorithm for self-consistent analysis of 3-D microelectro-mechanical-systems (MEMS) is described. The algorithm employs a hybrid finite-element/boundary-element technique for coupled mechanical and electrical analysis. The coupled algorithm is shown to converge rapidly and is much faster than relaxation for tightly coupled problems.
