Methodology for Compliant Mechanisms Design: Part II - Shooting Method and Application
A major task envisioned in the design of compliant mechanisms entails analyzing a large-deflection elastica for its deformed configuration, while being subjected to given displacement and force boundary conditions. The accuracy and convergence behavior of a chain calculation method for predicting nonlinear deflections in beam structures is examined. Three shooting methods are implemented to reduce boundary condition closure errors. These methods are evaluated by considering two example problems in compliant mechanisms.
