Deployable and Reconfigurable Structures (CEE 501) – University of Michigan:

Course Topics: This course covers the theory, analysis, and design of deployable and reconfigurable structures. A review of existing and emerging structural systems will cover bar linkages, pantographs (scissor mechanisms), origami structures, and bi/multi-stable units. Conceptual topics will include deployment kinematics, stability, geometric constraints, mechanical behaviors, energy formulations, and matrix analysis of the systems. Practical areas discussed in the course will include structural design, material systems, actuation technologies, and fabrication methods. The course will include a student project to explore engineering applications of the structures in architecture, aerospace, robotics, and beyond.
