Mechanical Design of Bionic Snake Mouth and its Analysis
Bionic snake mouth mechanism aims at realizing open bite and swallows movements of the snake mouth. Depending on the basis of the anatomy of snake mouth and the combination of bionics and engineering, the mechanism was made. Based on the static analysis of the mechanism, the finite element analysis was performed and the fang mechanism was optimized.
