The transmission and motion behavior of compliant systems is achieved by the specific elastic deformation of its adhesively joined coupled elements. In addition to a very precise motion a wide range of deformation behavior and the application of intrinsic sensor and actuator technologies are possible with compliant systems.
Modeling, simulation and optimizing for specified criteria, like adjusting a certain range of movement or achieving a proper state of stress
Purposeful adjustment of special properties (e.g. snap through) obtaining extensive force characteristics and paths of motion
Development and analysis of highly elastic structures with intrinsic sensor and actuator functions as well as a special mechanical performance
Research of newly-developed principles of transmission of motion and positioning according to biological models as well as their technical implementation
Mechanisms are constrained systems of bodies designed to transmit and to convert motions and forces. More complex and small-scale systems as well as more and more challenging tasks lead to increasing demands on the mechanisms. In this case model-based development is essential for which analytical and computer based methods are used.
Model-based analysis of motion behaviour and mechanical stress (finite element analysis) for complex mechanisms
Synthesis for predetermined motion behaviour and transmission functions
Optimization concerning the dynamical behaviour as well as resulting stress of particular linkages
Optimization of the vibration characteristics
