Paper Abstract

With the properties of prestressability, deployability and simplicity of member connections, tensegrity structures can have wide applications. This paper presents an application of tensegrity structures to the NESTOR project. This paper presents a description of the geometry description and the static analysis algorithm. A deployment sequence is also presented.
