Origami-based structures with programmable properties
A novel cellular metamaterial constructed from origami building blocks based on Miura-ori fold is presented and an origami “string” is introduced: a slender structure with a programmable trajectory that demonstrates capabilities of the proposed origami strings for robotics application such as a robotic gripper and a biomimetic hand.
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.
Origami-based metamaterial with switchable abnormal expansion function
The coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) is an important parameter for the thermophysical properties of materials. Mostly, in aerospace engineering, satellites, hypersonic vehicles, precision
Origami-based cellular metamaterial with auxetic, bistable, and self-locking properties
The kinematics and force response of the cellular metamaterial during folding were studied to investigate the underlying mechanisms resulting in its unique properties using analytical modeling and experiments.
Revealing the Dynamic Characteristics of Composite Material-Based Miura-Origami Tube
The outcomes revealed that the natural frequency and corresponding dynamic displacement response of the structure can be adjusted in a larger range by varying the geometric and material parameters, which is realized by combining origami techniques and the composite structures’ characteristics.

The background of origami/kirigami structures is discussed, fabrication techniques and characterization of the structures are introduced and a wide field of engineering applications like energy harvesting/storage, bioengineering, and healthcare devices for unconventional applications are reviewed.


Unraveling metamaterial properties in zigzag-base folded sheets
Inspired by the kinematics of a one–degree of freedom zigzag strip, a class of cellular folded mechanical metamaterials comprising different scales of zgzag strips is introduced, which is appropriate for a wide range of applications from mechanical met amaterials to deployable structures at small and large scales.
Origami based Mechanical Metamaterials
We describe mechanical metamaterials created by folding flat sheets in the tradition of origami, the art of paper folding, and study them in terms of their basic geometric and stiffness properties,
Origami interleaved tube cellular materials
A novel origami cellular material based on a deployable cellular origami structure is described. The structure is bi-directionally flat-foldable in two orthogonal (x and y) directions and is
Geometric mechanics of periodic pleated origami.
This work 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.
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.
Design and Analysis of a Foldable/Unfoldable Corrugated Architectural Curved Envelop
Origami and paperfolding techniques may inspire the design of structures that have the ability to be folded and unfolded: their geometry can be changed from an extended, servicing state to a compact
Engineering the shape and structure of materials by fractal cut
The present work addresses the simple modification of any material via hierarchical cut patterns to allow for extremely large strains and shape changes and a large range of macroscopic shapes.
Reentrant Origami-Based Metamaterials with Negative Poisson's Ratio and Bistability.
This study shows analytically and experimentally that the Poisson's ratio changes from positive to negative and vice versa during its folding motion, and verified the bistable mechanism of the reentrant 3D TMP under rigid origami configurations without relying on the buckling motions of planar origami surfaces.
Miura-Base Rigid Origami: Parameterizations of First-Level Derivative and Piecewise Geometries
Miura and Miura-derivative rigid origami patterns are increasingly used for engineering and architectural applications. However, geometric modelling approaches used in existing studies are generally
Accommodating Thickness in Origami-Based Deployable Arrays
The purpose of this work is to create deployment systems with a large ratio of stowed-to-deployed diameter. Deployment from a compact form to a final flat state can be achieved through
