Abstract

A fully packaged convective vortex gyrometer actuated by a PZT diaphragm is reported. The flow circulates at higher velocity after each actuating circle to form a vortex in the desired chamber. The vortex is characterized by hotwire anemometry. The device is initially designed based on a numerical analysis whose results are used to set up the experiment. The angular rate sensing of the device is successfully tested using a turntable. The technique is a potential solution to various applications related to inertial sensing and fluidic amplifier.
