Topology Optimization of a Prosthetic Knee Joint Component

Abstract

In order to simulate the damping effect of cartilage at human’s knee joint, the component of a prosthetic knee joint is topology optimized as a compliant mechanism. After optimization, the component not only has the desired damping effect, but also has a lightweight structure, which is still capable of withstanding the prescribed loads. The SIMP (Solid… (More)
