Professor Larry Howell and Ph.D. student Shannon Zirbel of the BYU CMR, along with researchers from NASA JPL and Cal Tech, collaborated with Dr. Eric Homer and Matt Haris to write a paper on the use of bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) in compliant mechanisms. BMGs have among the highest elastic strain limit of any metals and can be injection molded like polymers, making them ideal compliant mechanisms materials. This paper was featured on the front cover of Advanced Engineering Material’s most recent issue. Click here to read the paper.
