Tensigrity is a structural system which was developed in the past 50 years. The concept of ‘ tensegrity ’ was first invented by architect B.

Fuller [29].The word tensegrity comes from two words “Tension + Integrity = Tensegrity”. To facilitate a deeper understanding of tensegrity structures, this book focuses on their two key design problems: self-equilibrium analysis and stability investigation.

In contrast to the pyramids, columns, and brick-on-brick buildings of the past, which pile solid elements compressively. Both the theoretical and experimental data show that the introduction of the metal rubber within the tensegrity configuration contributes to improve significantly the energy absorption, and to Author: Valentin Gomez-Jauregui.COVID Resources.
