ABSTRACT:
Application of the linear six-parameter shell theory to the analysis of orthotropic tensegrity plate-like structures is proposed in the paper. A continuum model of a tensegrity plate with the self-stress state included is used. The tensegrity module, which is based on 4-strut expanded octahedron modules with additional connecting cables is proposed as an example. Different planes of support of the structures are taken into account and thus different reference surfaces of the plate model are considered. The self-stress state and some geometrical parameters are introduced for parametric analysis.
