Abstract
Recently, a new type of mechanism called compliant mechanism has been developed and applied mainly in the field
of micro-mechanics. A compliant mechanism has flexible parts to stabilize the structure, which is contrary to the
conventional unstable mechanism. Although a compliant mechanism is usually modeled as a continuum with elastic
