Truss model of origami inspired folded structures

Wojciech Jerzy Gilewski , Jan Maria Pełczyński


Origami is an old art of paper folding developed in Japan. Initially it was limited only to religious purposes. However nowadays architects and engineers takes an inspiration from origami while creating structures. From mechanical point of view origami can be defined as a folded structure and should be described by a six parameter shell theory. The present paper shows an attempt to build a simplified model of origamiinspired folded structures based on the pin-joined space bars. The model allows to analyse the influence of the introduced geometry on the global properties of the structure. The results for two basic origami modules Eggbox and Miura Ori are presented and discussed.
