Kinematic design of a reconfigurable deployable canopy
A reconfigurable and deployable mechanism is proposed for a canopy which can also be used as a tent or a semi-open structure. The proposed single degree-of-freedom mechanism has four as-sembly modes. The conditions for ...
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 ...
