Improved Pseudo-Rigid-Body Model Parameter Values for End-Force-Loaded Compliant Beams
Pseudo-rigid-body models help expedite the compliant mechanism design process by aiding the analysis and synthesis of candidate design solutions, using loop-closure techniques for rigid-body mechanisms. Opportunities for improvement were observed in the values of pseudo-rigid-body model parameters for compliant beams with nearly axial, tensile end force loads. This paper presents improved values for the affected parameters.
