Soft robots, characterised by compliant mechanisms (CMs) made from low-stiffness materials, offer improved adaptability compared to traditional, rigid robots. These CMs are often actuated by pressure loads. Moreover, soft robots provide new possibilities in the area of robotics. They can be used in search and rescue and interact safely in...

The recent success of - and demand for - compliant mechanisms has increased rapidly within the micro-electromechanical systems-, aircraft-, spacecraft-, surgical-, and precision-instrument industries. Yet, even greater success may be achieved by overcoming the computational cost and instability of the mechanisms' design methodology. This...

Density-based topology optimization, when used to design structures that show geometrical non-linear behaviour, currently faces computational effort and stability issues. These issues are caused by the iterative method used in geometric non-linear structural analysis. On top of taking much computational effort to complete, this method encounters...

Applications for thermoelastic metamaterials, in which extremely positive, zero or negative thermal expansion is desired, are plentiful. Nevertheless they are rarely applied, due to their poor manufacturability. To enhance their applicability, a topology optimization framework is proposed and verified, able to generate finite thermoelastic...

Although the field of structural optimization has undergone substantial growth the last decades, the efficiency of the programs used to generate structurally optimal designs for industrial applications remains questionable. To make matters worse, as structural problems become more complex, e.g. by adding multi-disciplinary optimization targets...
