Geometry of transformable metamaterials inspired by modular origami

Abstract:

Modular origami is a type of origami where multiple pieces of paper are folded into modules, and these modules are then interlocked with each other forming an assembly. Some of them turn out to be capable of large-scale shape transformation, making them ideal to create metamaterials with tuned mechanical properties. In this paper, we carry out a fundamental research on two-dimensional (2D) transformable assemblies inspired by modular origami. Using mathematical tiling and patterns and mechani...
