TENSEGRITY : Flexible structures with many areas of application (English)
Abstract [en]

Sliperiet is located in Umeå and runs an interdisciplinary project named +Project. Through this project, they want to investigate an area of flexible structures where the subject of tensegrity is included. A tensegrity structure consists of struts enclosed in a web made up of wires and is held together by a combination of compressions and stresses. There exists a ratio between the length of the struts and the length of the wire, which affects the properties of the structure. The purpose and goal of this work is thus to produce and investigate tensegrity structures, with the intention of launching the subject of tensegrity within the field of flexible structures as a part of the +Project. The work is limited to basic tensegrity structures. Three different kind of prototypes and two models are constructed based on basic tensegrity structures. The manufacturing of a third model started but was cancelled to keep the time frame for the project. Most of the goals were met and improvements that could be made in the production of the models are presented, as well as proposals for future work.
