The cymbal transducer had more improved performances than the moonie transducer, but as with the moonie end caps, flexural motion of the cymbal end caps would cause high-tangential stresses, which could lead to loss of mechanical output energy. So, a new-style design, called slotted-cymbal transducer, is presented in this paper. The slotted-cymbal transducer released the tangential stresses by adopting a new-style, radial-slotted cymbal end caps. Through theoretical calculation and finite element analysis in collaboration with measurements, the slotted-cymbal transducer was demonstrated to possess high performances of displacement and energy transmission. This design would decrease the fundamental resonance frequencies of systems by different numbers of slots, and it would have more potential applications of low frequency and large displacement.
