Abstract

A Genetic Algorithms (GA) approach to dimensional synthesis of an adaptive pliers mechanism is presented. Satisfaction functions are implemented in a custom C++ algorithm to enforce ergonomic and force-transmission goals. Using various values of selection rate and crossover rate, along with a "diversity monitor," many solutions are found which are functionally superior to the original mechanism.
