... by a National Science Foundation grant (Grant No. CMMI 0846738). This might appear counterintuitive since the axial beam stiffness increases linearly with beam thickness t . However, k 33 represents the axial stiffness normalized with respect to the bending stiffness, which leads...

... analogs. The large-deflection behavior of a fixed-clamped CNT is not well-predicted by macroscale large-deflection beam bending models or truss models. Herein, we show that a pseudo-rigid-body model may be adapted to capture the strain stiffening behavior and, thereby, predict a CNT’s fixed-clamped...

...Kai Xu; Nabil Simaan This paper presents a novel and unified analytic formulation for kinematics, statics, and shape restoration of multiple-backbone continuum robots. These robots achieve actuation redundancy by independently pulling and pushing three backbones to carry out a bending motion of two...
