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 ...
Design of reconfigurable doubly-curved canopy structure
(CRC Press, 2013)
In this paper, a new reconfigurable doubly-curved structure has been developed for a canopy roof. The proposed structure can transform itself to various configurations according to the activity and user requirements. It ...
A novel adaptive spatial scissor-hinge structural mechanism for convertible roofs
In this paper, a new adaptive deployable spatial scissor-hinge structural mechanism (SSM) is introduced, which can be converted by means of actuators between a multitude of arch-like, dome-like and double curved shapes, ...
Design of a 2-DOF 8R linkage for transformable hypar structure
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-01)
Double curved geometries including hyperbolicparaboloids (hypars) have become a trend in contemporary architecture. However, most of the constructed architectural examples of the hypars are static and cannot offer any form ...
Design of adaptive structures by kinematic synthesis of mechanisms
(CRC Press, 2013)
Parallel to the development of material science and computer technologies, adaptive structures and smart building components have become the demand of contemporary architecture. However, in order to design adaptive systems, ...
A review of planar scissor structural mechanisms: Geometric principles and design methods
(Taylor & Francis, 2011)
This study deals with a review of planar scissor structural mechanisms (SSMs) and reports on how they can be easily transformed from a stowed to a deployed configuration. These mechanisms have an important transformation ...
