Mech Eng 5704: Compliant Mechanism Design

Introduction to compliant mechanisms; review of rigid-body mechanism analysis and synthesis methods; synthesis of planar mechanisms with force/energy constraints using graphical and analytical methods; pseudo-rigid-body models; force-deflection relationships; compliant mechanism synthesis methods; and special topics, e.g. bistable mechanisms, constant-force mechanisms, parallel mechanisms, and chain algorithm in design. Emphasis will be on applying the assimilated knowledge through a project on compliant mechanisms design.
