Computational Aspects of the Design of Micro-Mechanical Hinged Structures

K. F. Bohringer

We are investigating computational aspects of engineering design problems that are amenable to tractable algorithmic solution. Our work focuses on parametric design of micro-mechanical hinged structures, which allow the construction of three-dimensional micromechanical devices. They are particularly attractive to design automation, because of (i) the highly specialized and automated production process, which constrains and guides geometric design, (ii) the possibly high number of devices produced simultaneously in one manufacturing process, (iii) and the rather simple geometry and functionality of the devices.
