A multi-dimensional (MD) semi-active vibration isolator for vehicular device is presented in this paper. The isolator is established based on a parallel mechanism with three limbs, each limb includes a sub-system which is composed of a magnetorheological (MR) damper and a linear spring. Then a semi-active fuzzy optimal control method is proposed to reduce the vibration acceleration of the vehicular device. The H∞ controller and the control strategy of MR damper are designed to get the possible output force of the MR damper. As the inverse dynamics of the MR damper is highly nonlinear, the T-S fuzzy model is obtained by genetic algorithm to identify the damper's input current. In addition, a new encoding method is developed when training the fuzzy model to optimize the inputs selection, the rules selection and the antecedentmembership function (MF) parameters simultaneously. Simulation results show that utilizing the presented vibration isolator can significantly reduce the MD vibration response of the vehicular device.

A novel hierarchical function action behavior mechanism (FABM) modeling framework is proposed to conduct intelligent mapping from the overall function to the principle solution, according to the requirements of customers. Based on the hierarchical modeling framework, an object-oriented representation method is developed to express the inheritance and the interconnecting characteristics between any two objects. In addition, the rules of expansion and modification in demand behavior are proposed to solve the combinational explosion problem, and the combinational rules in the mechanism behavior are developed to extend the innovation of the principle solution. A case study on the pan mechanism design for a cooking robot is presented to demonstrate the implementation of intelligent reasoning based on the FABM model. © 2012 The Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

In this article, a novel deployable mechanism that can be depaloyed from a bundle compact configuration onto a large volume double-layer truss structure is proposed. The mechanism is constructed by a set of Myard linkages through specially designed mechanical connections, so that the whole assembled mechanism has single degree of freedom. The model of the multi-objective design for the proposed deployable mechanism is developed. In the optimal design of this mechanism, many design objectives have to be taken into consideration, such as weight, stiffness, packaging/expansion ratio and natural frequency, etc. Many of these design objectives have no explicit analytical expression and may be contradicted with each other. A randomized multi-objective search algorithm is proposed for solving this multi-objective design problem, by using the algorithm, the set of Pareto optimal solutions can be obtained, and the relationship between different objectives is figured out, so that the designers can choose the compromise solutions intuitively. The physical prototype is also fabricated based on the optimized parameters, the stiffness and natural frequency experiments are conducted to evaluate the design. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed mechanism offers an attractive combination of performance characteristics for both stiffness and natural frequency. © IMechE 2012.
