Design of anti-parallelogram loop assemblies
(International Association for Shell and Spatial Structures, 2019)
Scissor mechanisms are frequently used for deployable structures and many studies have been conducted on the subject. Most of the studies consider scissor units as modules in the design process. An alternative approach is ...
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 ...
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 critical review on classification and terminology of scissor structures
(Int. Association for Shell and Spatial Structures, 2019-03)
When the existing literature on the research of scissor structures is thoroughly investigated, it is seen that different researchers use different terminologies and classifications especially for the definition of the ...
