 February 7, 2007, 15:50 pressure modeling on Microcantilever #1 Hadi Yagubizade Guest   Posts: n/a I have a problem in my project and is : I have a microcantilever beam that is in plat.i have two force that act to this beam, 1. magnetic force from bottom and 2. flow drag force that act to cantilever when it bend in effect of magnetic force. i can model the magnetic force and is non-linear , for this matter i must model drag effect and after that i solve that in same time. but i can't model the drag force on microcantilever beam. in your opinion how can i model drag force.? thanks

I want to discribe more about my problem. with attention to this point that my microcantilever is horizontal and the flow also is, and with out of magnetic force i don't have drag force on it becouse the cantilever is prallel with flow, but after bending with magnetic force from bottom, now we have drag force, similar that i take quarter cylinder on opposite of flow in boundary layer(becouse is Micro). i want that you help me more, if possible and i can't find any reference , if you have any reference , i wait you. sincerly
