Seffen, KA (2012) Compliant shell mechanisms. Philos Trans A Math Phys Eng Sci, 370. pp. 2010-2026. ISSN 1364-503XFull text not available from this repository.
This paper describes a class of lightweight structures known as compliant shell mechanisms. These are novel reconfigurable solutions for advanced structures, such as morphing shells and deployable membranes. They have local, discrete corrugations, which articulate and deform to achieve dramatic changes in the overall shape of the shell. The unique kinematics are considered by highlighting examples and by performing analysis using established and novel concepts, and favourable predictions of shape compared with laboratory models are demonstrated.
