ABSTRACT
To utilize beam flexures in constraint-based flexure
mechanism design, it is important to develop a qualitative and
quantitative understanding of their constraint characteristics in
terms of stiffness and error motions. This paper provides a
highly generalized yet accurate closed-form load-displacement
model for two-dimensional beam flexures, taking into account
the nonlinearities arising from load equilibrium applied in the
