Tensegrity structures are based on a network of elements working in pure compression or traction. In this experiment, star-shaped tensegrity modules composed of steel tubes and ropes were tested under different types of loading and pre-stressing.
Aim of monitoring:
SOFO sensors from Smartec were installed on all elements (tubes and ropes) of the Tensegrity structure to monitor their deformations when the structures were pre-stressed and under load applied at different locations
