Differential mechanisms are remarkable mechanical elements that are widely utilized in various systems; nevertheless, conventional differential mechanisms are heavy and difficult to use in applications with limited design space. This paper presents a curved differential mechanism that utilizes a lightweight, compliant structure. This...

Orthotic wrist supports will be beneficial for people with muscular weakness to keep their hand in a neutral rest position and prevent potential wrist contractures. Compensating the weight of the hands is complex since the level of support depends on both wrist and forearm orientations. To explore simplified approaches, two different weight...

Elastic structures that can deflect without springback, known as neutrally stable structures, form a remarkable group within their field, since they require the energetic state to remain unchanged during elastic deformation. Several examples in the literature obtain this state of neutral stability by the application of pre-stress, either as a...

Continuously Variable Transmissions (CVT) can serve as subsystems for a variety of machineries and robotic systems. A compliant CVT mechanism based on the warping of twisting beams is presented here. The design works based on the demonstrated fact that the twist on one side of a beam can be transferred via sectional warping and propagate...

This paper presents a novel shape morphing concept, which exploits neutral stability to achieve reversible shape morphing. The concept is based on actively changing the material stiffness on a local level in order to perturb the neutral stability and thus induce the shell to deform. This concept is realized by embedding Ni-Ti wires in a...

A cantilevered rod's endpoint has a symmetric stiffness profile throughout its range of motion. Generally, this is not the case for spatially curved compliant beams, particularly if they are asymmetric, i.e., their fixation is not in the symmetry plane of their endpoint operating field. This paper discusses a technique for obtaining symmetric...

Compliant mechanisms (CM) with adaptive stiffness have been widely used in robotics and machine design applications. This paper proposes adapting the endpoint stiffness of a spatially curved compliant beam using a movable torsional stiffener and a new graphical characterization method for the resulting anisotropic stiffness of the endpoint...

Elastic neutral stability in compliant mechanisms is a remarkable appearance since it requires the energetic state of the structure to remain unchanged during a deformation mode. Several examples in literature require either plastic deformation or external constraints to be enforced to obtain a state of pre-stress and often require the use of...

Mechanisms that consist of many elements and are potentially small sized, benefit from kinematic elementary units like revolute joints that are compliant and monolithic, and therefore could be produced without need for assembly. We present a novel concept of a compliant revolute joint that features low axis drift, high support stiffness and a...

Inspired by phenomena in the plant world, a meteoro-sensitive rotational actuator is developed. The design uses a hygro-active shell, whose water-based swelling is restricted at selective locations to form a helicoid structure. The influence of geometrical parameters on the performance is investigated using a numerical analysis of various...

A design tool for passive wrist support using compliant spatial beams as gravity balancer is presented. The aim of this assistive device is to reduce required effort for pronation-supination and flexion-extension by 70% to help patients with muscular weakness keeping their hand’s posture and doing daily tasks, while the forearm is rested. To...

A method to achieve symmetric kinetostatic behaviour in an extensive working range at the endpoint of an asymmetric spatial beam, using cross-section optimization, is presented. The objective function of the optimization is defined as expanding the beam working range to the desired region, simultaneously maximizing symmetric behaviour in it....

Compliant shape-preserving mechanisms fill a small niche within the established research field of compliant mechanisms. To date no report exists on a compliant shape-preserving ring, even though these mechanisms can give rise to a multitude of practical applications. They can essentially act as novel sealing mechanisms, compliant grippers or...

This work is dedicated to the study of the large-displacement behaviour of a spiral spring. Parameters that influence the local torsion stiffness of the beam that constitutes the spiral are varied and their effect is studied. Cross-sectional shape, orthotropic material orientation and prestress are the three classes of parameters that are...

In this dissertation a collection of concepts to synthesise nonlinear springs is presented. Such springs can be useful in various application domains where, e.g., multi-stability or static balancing is desired. These behaviors are often sought to alleviate the effort required for actuation. The explored concepts are presented by showing the...

This paper presents a method for the design of a statically balanced inverted pendulum. The non-linear moment-rotation characteristic of the pendulum's weight is approximated by a piecewise linear characteristic. Each transition is realized by engaging or disengaging one or more torsion bars, by means of mechanical stops. The whole set of...

The research on compliant shell mechanisms is a new and promising expansion of the well established compliant mechanisms research area. Benefits of compliant shell mechanisms include being spatial and slender, having organic shapes and their high tailorability of the load-displacement response. This work focusses on the design of a shell with...

A zero free length (ZFL) spring is a spring with special properties, which is commonly used in static balancing. Existing methods to create ZFL springs all have their specific drawbacks, which rises to the need of a new method to create such a spring. A method is proposed to design planar ZFL springs with specified stiffness (250–750 N/m)...
