EVENT 12 September 2023

Lunch lecture October hosted by TU Delft

Design strategies for large range flexure mechanisms


About this event

Flexure mechanisms (or elastic elements) use elastic deformation to achieve motion, which results in highly repeatable and lubricant-free systems. A drawback is their limited motion range due to design trade-offs between stress, dynamic/stiffness performance and build volume. In this talk, new strategies to increase this motion range will be presented, including movies of different demonstrators.

Speaker: Jelle Rommers (supervisors Volkert van der Wijk and Just L. Herder)

Affiliation: TU Delft

This lecture will start at: October 2 on 12:02pm (Teams digital and only for members of the DSPE)

Order of frictions and stiffnesses…

For lumped systems consisting of different frictions and stiffnesses, there has been confusion in literature about hysteresis curves and virtual play for many decades.
