This research centered on the investigation of effective strategies for enhancing the mechanical behavior and mobility of industrial devices with mobile elements subjected to three-point torsion loads. Several steps were taken to accomplish the objective of creating effective engineering solutions. One of the beams underwent a sensitivity analysis to determine the effect of each variable in the mass and displacement parameter space. It has been shown that parameterizing the ANSYS input file is effective for finding out how sensitive is the system to the design variables studied. In the future, additional research could be conducted in an effort to generalize the methodology to various models and/or situations.
