Abstract: This paper deals with the coupled mechanical-electrostatic analysis of a shunt capacitive MEMS switch. The mechanical and electrostatic parts of the prob- lem are modelled by the FE method and BE method, respectively. The fast multipole method is applied to reduce the storage requirements and the computational cost of the BE electrostatic model. An adaptive truncation expansion of the 3D Laplace Green function is employed. The strong interaction between the mechanical and electrostatic systems is taken into account iteratively.
