Advanced flexure design principles, modeling approaches, engineering tools, and best practices. Applications: precision motion stages, general purpose flexure bearings, and MEMs/Nano-scale positioning systems. Emphasis on kinematic and elastomechanic flexure systhesis using principles of constraint-based design. Lectures, assigned readings, hands-on exercises, and a substantial project involving 3-D printing.
