This paper presents the simulation of various electromechanical performance parameters for an efficient and broadband air coupled Capacitive Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducer (CMUT) for Non Destructive Testing and Evaluation (NDT/NDE) using FEM simulation tool, CoventorWare. The non contact ultrasonic inspection performed in ambient air reduces the complexity and cost. Various critical parameters like collapse voltage, resonant frequency, coupling coefficient, squeeze film damping, bandwidth, quality factor and transient response of the single cell of CMUT are discussed. We employ a hexagonal CMUT cell for the modeling, which has higher packing density.
