Building Dynamic Stiffness Matrix Library of Flexure Members for Use in a Dynamic Stiffness Model of Compliant Mechanisms
Based on our studies on the kinetostatic and dynamic modeling of compliant mechanisms with a dynamic stiffness method, this paper continues to build the dynamic stiffness matrix library for common flexure members, so as to make the technique competent for all kinds of compliant mechanisms. Designers can choose suitable dynamic stiffness matrix from the library to analyze the kinetostatics and dynamics of their involved mechanisms. One can also rebuild a customized dynamic stiffness matrix and readily add it into the library thanks to the unified definition and regular form. In this way, the concurrent kinetostatics and dynamics of complex compliant mechanisms with hybrid flexible beams, flexure hinges and rigid bodies can be analyzed straightforwardly in a statics-similar manner. A micro-gripper from the previous literature is used as the case study to verify the proposed approach. The results show the concise modeling procedure of the presented method with high prediction accuracy.
