Subject: Preliminary Transfer Function Measurements on MC1/MC3 

I have successfully completed a preliminary transfer function measurement test on the MC1/MC3 stack in COMSOL. Using the measurement scheme described on the Wiki, I initialized a 1 N/m^2 sinusoidal perturbation on the bottom of the stack and measured the maximum displacement of the top layer. This preliminary test just calculated the responses to 1-,2-,3-,4-, and 5-Hz drives along the x-axis (pictures attached).

Currently, I am rerunning the same test but from 1-10 Hz with 0.1-Hz steps. When both x- and y-axis responses have been plotted, I can move on to repeating this entire process on the MC2 stack.
