Origami structures are mechanical metamaterials with properties that arise almost exclusively from the geometry of the constituent folds and the constraint of piecewise isometric deformations. Here we characterize the geometry and planar and nonplanar effective elastic response of a simple periodically folded Miura-ori structure, which is composed of identical unit cells of mountain and valley folds with four-coordinated ridges, defined completely by two angles and two lengths. We show that the… Expand

An origami-inspired structure with graded stiffness
Abstract Origami-inspired structures and mechanical metamaterials are often made up of individual tessellating repeat units, the folding and relative geometry of which determine the overallExpand
Foldable cones as a framework for nonrigid origami.
This work studies the elastic behavior of isometric f-cones for any deflection and crease mechanics, which introduce nonlinear corrections to a linear model studied previously, and tests the inextensibility hypothesis by means of a continuous numerical model that includes both the extended nature of the creases, stretching and bending deformations of the panels.

Curving origami with mechanical frustration
Abstract We study the three-dimensional equilibrium shape of a shell formed by a deployed accordion-like origami, made from an elastic sheet decorated by a series of parallel creases crossed by aExpand

Folding to Curved Surfaces: A Generalized Design Method and Mechanics of Origami-based Cylindrical Structures
An in-plane design method is proposed to approximate curved surfaces of interest with generalized Miura-ori units and generates multiple types of cylindrical structures, extending the design space of mechanical metamaterials and providing a basis for their practical applications in science and engineering.

Topological transitions in the configuration space of non-Euclidean origami.
It is shown that the configuration space of nonintersecting, oriented vertices with positive Gaussian curvature decomposes into disconnected subspaces; there is no pathway between them without tearing the origami, providing a new, and only partially explored, mechanism by which the mechanics and folding of an origami structure could be controlled.

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
