Compliant Mechanism

Course Description

The area of compliant mechanisms is a relatively new field of study. Recently developed theory makes possible the design of many new types of mechanisms, and this course will concentrate on the design and analysis of such mechanisms. The topics of traditional kinematics and linear elastic deflections will be reviewed, and the area of large-deflection analysis will be introduced. Compliant mechanism theory will be introduced and applied. A term project will be a central part of the course.
