Abstract

In this thesis, the researcher will discuss how to find the best shape for flexure mechanisms using the methodology of topology and shape optimization methods, specifically the Level Set method. The first section will introduce the basic research in optimization methods. The second section will discuss the Level Set method in particular. In the third section, flexible structures and special manner of design will be considered and defined. In the fourth section, the results are compared with the results of other researchers.
