Tailoring the Mechanics of Origami to Make Deployable & Adaptable Structures

Evgueni Filipov

Structural Seminar Structural Seminar
The art of origami can be used to create a rich variety of deployable, reconfigurable, and adaptable three-dimensional systems. By designing the geometry & mechanical properties of the origami, it is possible to create engineering systems ranging from micro-robots to large-scale adaptable architecture.This talk will present his group’s work on different origami geometries and discuss how their properties are suited to making unique functional structures. They will present cellular and tubular origami which can be used for stiff large-structures and energy absorbing devices. Using
curved creases, they'll show a broad range of possible geometric designs that possess highly anisotropic properties. An origami with a hyperbolic paraboloid geometry is used to achieve bistable and multi-stable characteristics that can aid in actuation. Finally, they'll show new work on using active material systems to achieve structures that can self-assemble. Lunch will be provided.

Professor Evgueni Filipov is an assistant professor in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Michigan. His research interests lie in the field of deployable and reconfigurable structural systems. Folding and adaptable structures based on the principles of origami can have practical applications ranging in scale and discipline from biomedical robotics to deployable architecture.
