    Abstract

    Basic study on membrane modules actuated by inflatable tubes to fit to future hierarchical membrane modular structure systems is introduced. Extended geometrical consideration on folding patterns of membrane structures is investigated considering dual property of tessellated planar surfaces, and deployment behavior of refined laboratory scale module models actuated by inflatable tubes with zigzag folding pattern and with modified zigzag folding one is presented. It is shown that some typical folding patterns for deployable membrane structures can be interpreted through geometrical basis, and thatthe hexagonal deployable module model with inflatable tubes with modified zigzag fold ing has stable deployment characteristics.
