- Summary note
- In order to contribute to the improvement of rescue efforts in the event of
natural disasters, the objective of this thesis is to design, build, and structurally
analyze a small-scale prototype of a deployable bridge structure which uses principles
of a structural form known as tensegrity. This simplified deployable tensegrity module
aims to use less actuators and a simpler deployment process than previous deployable
tensegrity designs, and serve as a basis for possible future deployable tensegrity bridge
designs of larger scale.
