Elastic Averaging in Flexure Mechanisms: a Multi-beam Parallelogram Flexure Case-study

Abstract

Over-constraint is an important concern in mechanism design because it can lead to a loss in desired mobility. In distributed-compliance flexure mechanisms, this problem is alleviated due to the phenomenon of elastic averaging, thus enabling performance-enhancing geometric arrangements that are otherwise unrealizable. The principle of elastic averaging is… (More)
