In the video above, Dr Derek Mueller from Veritasium takes us into the world of compliant mechanisms. What are compliant mechanisms? In mechanical engineering, compliant mechanisms are flexible mechanisms that transfer an input force and displacement at one port to an output force and displacement at another port through elastic body deformation. These may be monolithic (single-piece) or jointless [...]
