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, ...
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 ...
