In this paper, a finite-element model of a slim optical disk drive is developed to investigate the transient response of the sled base and disk. The model is simplified by using beam, shell and lumped parameter elements, in order to decrease the computational time. After the dynamic characteristics of the finite-element model have been verified by modal test, the shock response is obtained and compared with the results of a drop test. Finally, dynamic characteristics are modified to improve the shock performance.
