Beschreibung

A fully illustrated reference book giving an easy-to-understand introduction to compliant mechanisms A broad compilation of compliant mechanisms to give inspiration and guidance to those interested in using compliant mechanisms in their designs, the Handbook of Compliant Mechanisms includes graphics and descriptions of many compliant mechanisms. It comprises an extensive categorization of devices that can be used to help readers identify compliant mechanisms related to their application. It also provides chapters on the basic background in compliant mechanisms, the categories of compliant mechanisms, and an example of how the Compendium can be used to facilitate compliant mechanism design. * Fully illustrated throughout to be easily understood and accessible at introductory levels * Covers all aspects pertaining to classification, elements, mechanisms and applications of compliant mechanisms * Summarizes a vast body of knowledge in easily understood diagrams and explanations * Helps readers appreciate the advantages that compliant mechanisms have to offer * Practical approach is ideal for potential practitioners who would like to realize designs with compliant mechanisms, members and elements * Breadth of topics covered also makes the book a useful reference for more advanced readers Intended as an introduction to the area, the Handbook avoids technical jargon to assist non engineers involved in product design, inventors and engineers in finding clever solutions to problems of design and function.

Klappentext

HANDBOOK OF COMPLIANT MECHANISMS

Provides guidance and inspiration for developing compliant mechanisms

Compliant mechanisms offer advantages such as increased performance (for example, high precision, low weight, low friction), lower cost (such as simplified manufacture, low part count), and ability to miniaturize (they make possible micro and nano mechanical devices). However, because compliant mechanisms are relatively new compared to more traditional devices, it is difficult to find examples and resources to guide the device designers in their work.

The Handbook of Compliant Mechanisms provides a resource to those interested in exploiting the unique advantages of compliant mechanisms. It includes a concise summary of modelling and design methods, plus a broad compilation of compliant mechanisms that will provide inspiration and guidance for new designs. Other chapters provide basic background in compliant mechanisms, summaries of the major methods for their modelling and design, and an example of how the Handbook can be used to facilitate compliant mechanism design.

Key features:

  • Fully illustrated throughout to be easily understood and accessible at introductory levels, whilst the breadth of topics makes the book a useful reference for more advanced readers
  • Helps readers appreciate the advantages that compliant mechanisms have to offer
  • Covers all aspects pertaining to classification, elements, mechanisms and applications of compliant mechanisms
