Modeling of an ultrasonic powder transportation system

Abstract : This paper presents a new powder transportation system that uses a high frequency flexural stationary wave coupled with a low frequency horizontal displacement of a beam to produce the transport of the powder. The ultrasonic wave is produced with the help of piezoelectric cells glued under the beam and is used to decrease the friction coefficient between the powder and the beam surface. The powder transport mechanism has been described using a simplified mathematical model.
