A novel concept of convertible roofs with high transformability consisting of planar scissor-hinge structures
In this paper, a new adaptive scissor-hinge structure is introduced, which can be converted by means of actuators between a multitude of curvilinear arch-like shapes, where it can be stabilized and carry loads. The key ...
A novel planar scissor structure transforming between concave and convex configurations
(WIT Press, 2017-06)
In this paper, a novel two-dimensional scissor structure that transforms between concave and convex configurations is presented. The structure is designed by a method of assembling kite or anti-kite loops in the flat ...
