Abstract

System for the construction of double-layer deployable structures: processes of formal definition Juan Carlos Gomez de Cozar & Rafael Garcia Dieguez Department of Architectural Constructions /, University of Seville, Spain. Abstract The following communication displays the development of the last results of a research which started in 1996. Our aim is to develop two-layer deployable structures which allow us to give solution to diverse geometrical shapes (flat, of simple and double curvature) for covers and walls. For the resolution of the different proposed geometries we have used modules based on the compatibility of movements of rhombuses and scissors. 1 The system In 1996 the authors of this communication developed a system denominated Florin: System for the construction of deployable structures of t\vo layers, based on meshes of multiangled rhombuses and scissors [1] [2] [3]. This was patented in 1997 (Florin, N° Reg. 9701926). From the beginning it was conceived both for t
