The structural part of the beam is modeled using PLANE82. The resistors are connected into a Wheatstone bridge arrangement by coupling the VOLT degrees of freedom on width sides of the resistors. The supply voltage is applied to the master node of the driving electrode. The applied pressure results in a uniform stress Sx...
