... is zero, CFMs are also termed zero-stiffness or quasi-zero-stiffness mechanisms. This concept has been used in vibration protecting [( 9 )], energy absorption [( 10 )], and statically balancing [( 11 12 13 14 15 )] devices. To explore more applications, Meaders and Mattson [( 16 )] optimized the shape...
