This paper discusses a structural optimization method that optimizes shape and topology based on the phase field method. The proposed method has the same functional capabilities as a structural optimization method based on the level set method incorporating perimeter control functions. The advantage of the method is the simplicity of computation, since(More)
Multi-axis force sensors are extensively utilized in engineering fields, for example in automotive development, where 6-axis force transducers are used to measure force components applied to wheels, and as sensors in robotic manipulators. These sensors are composed of sensing devices such as strain gages and transducer structures. The transducer structures(More)
