Abstract

A capillary bundle model is used to evaluate the permeability and streaming potential coupling coefficient of a porous transducer, which is the key element of a fluid-based angular accelerometer. The capillary bundle is specified with structural parameters and a method to transform the particle size distribution into the capillary radius distribution. Together with a theoretical model of zeta potential and specific surface conductance, the model is applied to determine permeability and streaming potential prediction. Three types of transducers are fabricated and experiments validate the proposed model, which is an important part of the sensor model for engineering application.
