On Orthotropic Properties of Tensegrity Structures

Anna Al Sabouni-Zawadzka , Wojciech Jerzy Gilewski


The present paper focuses on the construction and the analysis of continuum models of different tensegrity structures. Single tensegrity modules, as well as more complex structures based on them are considered. It is shown that the orthotropic systems can be built using both the orthotropic and the anisotropic modules. An influence of additional elements, such as the connecting cables, on the properties of the structure is presented. The analysed orthotropic systems have practical applications in civil engineering
