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 ...
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 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 ...
