SOFO sensors were installed on all elements (tubes and ropes) to monitor their deformations when the structures was pre-stressed and under load applied at different locations

Tensegrity structures are based on a network of element 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 were installed on all elements (tubes and ropes) to monitor their deformations when the structures was pre-stressed and under load applied at different locations. 

INSTALLATION PERIOD TYPE OF SENSORS NUMBER OF SENSORS
1998 SOFO 66





 




Main results:

The Measurements resulted in a better understanding of the complicated behavior of these structures. It was found that by low pre-stressing values, the response of the structure is highly non-linear, while for higher pre-stresses it behaves more and more linearly
