Traditionally, origami-based structures are designed on the premise of “rigid folding,” However, every act of folding and unfolding is accompanied by elastic deformations in real structures. This study focuses on these elastic deformations in order to expand origami into a new method of designing morphing structures. The authors start by proposing a simple model for evaluating elastic deformation in nonrigid origami structures. Next, these methods are applied to deployable plate models…

Curved-line folding is the act of folding a flat sheet of material along a curved crease pattern in order to create a three-dimensional shape. It is a creative and innovative way to produce lightweight and geometrically stiff components using only sheet materials. The pavilion presented in this paper integrates this principle in a kit-of-parts system. After being cut out of flat plates, the components get their 3D shape by folding them along a set of predefined curved lines. This deformed…
