Paper Abstract

A new four-axis polarized scattering instrument is presented in this paper. In order to capture instrumental characteristics, the finite element analysis has been utilized to investigate the static behaviors such as the structural volume and tip deflection. Both topological and parametric optimization in presenting double-loop approach results in optimum material distribution and volume fraction. The resulting optimum model has been further modified to a solid prototype for final product design. The ultimate result shows that the tip deflection, material volume can evidently be optimized so that the enhancement of instrumental precision can be achieved. The proposed exploration of process and skill can provide for general mechanical structural design in creative sense.
