The main advantage of using the tensegrity
structure is that the robot is a lot more robust, and the goal is to just be able to drop it down from orbit on some low gravity body--no parachutes, no retro-burners, no airbags are needed for it.
Finite element analysis of tensegrity
structures in offshore aquaculture installations.
Minimum mass design of tensegrity
bridges with parametric architecture and multiscale complexity.
A computational tensegrity
model predicts dynamic rheological behaviors in living cells.
The Morpho robot  is based on deformation and the tensegrity
model of the cellular structure, where cells exert expansion and contraction forces on the entire structure.
Whether it's tensegrity
habitats in space, new ways to get humans to Mars, delicate photonic propulsion, or any one of the other amazing Phase II studies NIAC is funding, I'm thrilled to welcome these innovations and their innovators back to the program.
It helps to maintain the tensegrity
of the body - this term is borrowed from architecture, and helps to explain the tensional relationships in the body which keep our posture as it should be.
The 25 selected papers describe some recent developments in deployable systems and structural mechanisms, rapidly assembled systems, temporary structures and dwellings, a variety of sustainable and innovative approaches, and applications of tensegrity
and reciprocal frames.
Based on Fuller who offers one of the first definitions, Tensegrity
structure are the islands of pressure within a sea of tension.
The topics include modeling and simulating silicon nanowire-based biosensors, optimizing organic photovoltaic cells, developing a dynamics model for epidermal growth factor (EGF)-induced cellular signaling events, modeling and the experimental verification of cell tensegrity
, modeling swimming micro/nano systems in low Reynolds number, and modeling and analyzing the cellular mechanics involved in the pathophysiology of disease and injury.
systems are light structures, suitable for knock down and foldable structures.
