De Focatiis, DS and Guest, SD (2002) Deployable membranes designed from folding tree leaves. Philos Trans A Math Phys Eng Sci, 360. pp. 227-238. ISSN 1364-503XFull text not available from this repository.
A simple model of deploying tree leaves is assembled in different arrangements to produce polygonal foldable membranes for use as deployable structures. One family of folding patterns exhibits a small strain mechanism, which is investigated. Variations on the basic arrangements can be used to fold membranes with a discretized curvature.
