The purpose of this paper is to integrate the concept of the flexible link model (FLM) with a modified real coded quantum inspired evolutionary algorithm (MRQIEA) for the optimum synthesis of partially compliant mechanisms. The purpose is to synthesize the compliant and rigid members of a partially compliant mechanism in a single optimization run. The compliant member parameters are defined by the FLM which facilitates the integration of the design variables associated with compliant members and rigid links in one solution vector. Four examples are presented to demonstrate the approach. Copyright © 2012 by ASME. Source
