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, ...
