Compliant mechanisms and its systems are the focus of the active research. It describes a single elastic continuum used to transfer the motion and force mechanically. Their flexibility and stabilities are significant. Topology optimization Method is taken for designing the compliant mechanisms. It is a Material distribution approach for finding the optimum size and shape of the structure. The Author focused mainly on automotive application of Compliant Mechanism.i.e Design and implement of compliant clutch fork using topology optimization. Dimensional data is gathered in order to model the actual clutch fork. Compliant clutch fork designs are developed by reducing the weights compare to actual clutch fork with the help of topology optimization to get optimal compliant design. Experiments are directed to confirm the functionality of compliant clutch fork.
