AbstractThe use of deployable structures has a wide range of applications nowadays. They can be transformed from a closed compact configuration to a predetermined expanded form, in which they are stable and can carry loads. This article describes a sort of deployable structure that has been patented by researchers of two Spanish institutions: San Pablo CEU University and Eduardo Torroja Institute. Geometric aspects are key to accomplish an efficient folding and unfolding procedure along with an optimum structural behavior when the structure is deployed. Tensioned cables are essential in these structures. The main goal is to make the cable acquire its maximum length when the structure is fully deployed. This will avoid complex operations of post-tensioning in order to make the cable perform its function.
