abstract

This paper describes the design of a novel multi-stable compliant mechanism capable of large angle deflections. The multi-stable COmpliant Rolling-contact Element (CORE), reduces friction, allows for large angular displacements, and requires no external force to remain in its multiple equilibrium positions. This paper develops and discusses seven methods to create multi-stable mechanisms from the CORE. These seven methods have different characteristics and advantages.
