Abstract

Deployment behavior of modularized structures is numerically analyzed from the viewpoint of synchronism. Elastic panels with single and double accordion folding patterns are examined as examples of modularized structures. Through computer simulations, it is shown that asynchronous deployments are caused by inertia forces. To improve the synchronism of the deployment, autonomous distributed control method is proposed. Control rules are driven based on equations of heat conduction and wave propagation. It is confirmed that simple autonomous distributed control can improve the synchronism of the deployment.
