Download Compliant Mechanisms: Design of Flexure Hinges by Nicolae Lobontiu PDF

By Nicolae Lobontiu

Flexure hinges carry a number of benefits over classical rotation joints, together with no friction losses, no use for lubrication, no hysteresis, compactness, means to be used in small-scale functions, ease of fabrication, nearly no meeting, and no required upkeep. Compliant Mechanisms: layout of Flexure Hinges presents functional solutions to the current and destiny wishes of effective layout, research, and optimization of units that include flexure hinges. With a hugely unique process the text:Discusses new and classical sorts of flexure hinges (single-, - and multiple-axis) for 2- and 3-dimensional applicationsAddresses a variety of commercial functions, together with micro- and nano-scale mechanismsQuantifies flexibility, precision of rotation, sensitivity to parasitic loading, power intake, and rigidity obstacles via closed-form compliance equationsOffers a unitary presentation of person flexure hinges as fully-compliant individuals by way of closed-form compliance (spring charges) equationsFully defines the lumped-parameter compliance, inertia and damping houses of flexure hinges Develops a finite aspect method of compliant mechanisms by means of giving the basic formula of recent flexure hinge line elementsIncorporates extra complex subject matters devoted to flexure hinges together with huge deformations, buckling, torsion, composite flexures, form optimization and thermal effectsCompliant Mechanisms: layout of Flexure Hinges presents functional solutions and instructions to the desires of successfully designing, reading, and optimizing units that come with flexure hinges. It comprises ready-to-use plots and easy equations describing numerous flexure forms for the pro that wishes fast suggestions to present functions. The booklet additionally offers self-contained, easy-to-apply mathematical instruments that offer enough tips for real-time challenge fixing of additional purposes.

Example text

The definition of the reciprocity principle in Betti’s interpretation was that the indirect or mutual work done by a loading system i during the application of a new loading system j is equal to the work done by the loading system j during the application of the loading system i. The proof of either Maxwell’s or Betti’s reciprocity principle formulations can 12 15 16 be found in Den Hartog, Timoshenko, or Ugural and Fenster, for instance. 10 Illustration of the reciprocity principle as applied to a spatially constrained elastic body: (a) first loading system and its deformations; (b) first and second loading systems and their deformations.

1) shows that the work was done quasi-statically, as the force Fi is applied gradually from zero to its nominal value Fi. The second term of Eq. 1) indicates that this work was performed statically by a fully applied force Fi. 3) 1367_Frame_C02 Page 27 Friday, October 18, 2002 1:49 PM Compliance-Based Design of Flexure Hinges 27 Assume now that the order of applying the two loads is reversed, namely that Mj will first load the elastic body, followed by the force Fi. 4) Because the work done on an elastic structure by a load vector composed of at least two components should not depend on the order of applying the individual load components, the works expressed in Eqs.

The overall palette will therefore consist of 16 individual configurations ranging within the domain bounded by the case of full-symmetry about both compliant axes to the design of no symmetry about both sensitive axes. 6 illustrates flexure configurations that present longitudinal, transverse, and full or complete symmetry. An important assumption that is basic to all further compliance derivation regards the boundary conditions of the flexure hinges. It is with tacit and common acceptance that a flexure hinge is assumed to be fixed–free, and this has been the case with all analytical approaches to flexure hinges ever 1 since the work of Paros and Weisbord.
