Viquerat, AD and Hutt, T and Guest, SD (2013) A plane symmetric 6R foldable ring. Mechanism and Machine Theory, 63. pp. 73-88. ISSN 0094-114XFull text not available from this repository.
The design of a deployable structure which deploys from a compact bundle of six parallel bars to a rectangular ring is considered. The structure is a plane symmetric Bricard linkage. The internal mechanism is described in terms of its Denavit-Hartenberg parameters; the nature of its single degree of freedom is examined in detail by determining the exact structure of the system of equations governing its movement; a range of design parameters for building feasible mechanisms is determined numerically; and polynomial continuation is used to design rings with certain specified desirable properties. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
