Tensegrity structures are spatial systems composed of tension and compression components in a self-equilibrated prestress stable state. Although the concept is over 60 years old, few tensegrity-based structures have been used for engineering purposes. Tensegrity-ring modules are deployable modules composed of a single strut circuit that, when combined, create a hollow rope. The “hollow-rope” concept was shown to be a viable system for a tensegrity footbridge. This paper focuses on the… CONTINUE READING
