Tensegrity systems are selfstressed reticulate space structures. As lightweight frames, they are subject to deformation and vibration issues when faced to natural stimulations such as temperature gradients or wind. Classical passive solutions impose to rigidify components or to add damping in the structure using heavy devices. Active systems, mainly developed in space and seismic fields, are controlled using external energy brought by activators. We describe in this paper a mixed geometric and… CONTINUE READING
