Rotational erection system (RES) represents an origami-based design method for generating a three-dimensional (3D) structure from a planar sheet without compression. Its rotational and translational kinematics is fully encoded in a form of prescribed cuts and folds that has only zero degrees of freedom in the geometric limit. Here we characterize mechanical and geometric properties of a threefold symmetric RES by combining finite element numerical simulation and physical experiment. We…

Origami structures with a critical transition to bistability arising from hidden degrees of freedom.

It is shown that the traditional square twist, whosecrease pattern has zero degrees of freedom (DOF) and therefore should not be foldable, can nevertheless be folded by accessing bending deformations that are not explicit in the crease pattern.

Topological kinematics of origami metamaterials

A variety of electronic phases in solid-state systems can be understood by abstracting away microscopic details and refocusing on how Fermi surface topology interacts with band structure to define

Bioinspired spring origami

Inspired by the wing of an earwig, a spring origami model is established that broadens the folding design space of traditional origami and allows for the fabrication of precisely tunable, four-dimensional–printed objects with programmable bioinspired morphing functionalities.

Initial rigid response and softening transition of highly stretchable kirigami sheet materials

The physical origins of the transition and mechanical regimes, which are revealed to be governed by simple scaling laws, could be useful for controlling and designing the mechanical response of sheet materials including cell sheets for medical regeneration and relevant to the development of materials with tunable stiffness and mechanical force sensors.

Using origami design principles to fold reprogrammable mechanical metamaterials

Working with the Miura-ori tessellation, it is found that each unit cell of this crease pattern is mechanically bistable, and by switching between states, the compressive modulus of the overall structure can be rationally and reversibly tuned.

Printing, folding and assembly methods for forming 3D mesostructures in advanced materials

A rapidly expanding area of research in materials science involves the development of routes to complex 3D structures with feature sizes in the mesoscopic range (that is, between tens of nanometres

Geometry of Miura-folded metamaterials

This paper describes two folded metamaterials based on the Miura-ori fold pattern, where the fold pattern provides a negative Poisson’s ratio for in-plane deformations and a positive Poisson's ratio for out-of-plane bending.

Self-Organized Origami

This paper examines the possible physical origin for the Miura-ori leaf-folding patterns that arise naturally in insect wings, leaves, and other laminae-like organelles, and points out examples where biaxial compression of an elastically supported thin film spontaneously generates these patterns.

Shape morphing Kirigami mechanical metamaterials

This work presents a new investigation of the Poisson’s ratios of a family of cellular metamaterials based on Kirigami design principles that can change their deformation characteristics by a combination of analytical models and numerical simulations.
