Abstract

The prism tensegrity is one of the types of the tensegrity system which due to its special characteristics, can cover all possible application of tensegrity in the field of civil and the structure engineering. According to the other researches and based on the process of the available form finding approaches, it is concuded that there is no practical approach for the form finding of the irregular prism tensegrity with a large number of members. In this paper a novel linear approach is introduced which can be used as a practical approach for the form finding of irregular prism tensegrity.

Keywords : form finding, irregular shape, linear approach, prism tensegrity
