Abstract

The concept proposed in thei work for chord extension is the use of a bistable arch and thin plate system. There are two foci of this paper: (1) Design of the arch and (2)Model validation via experiment. Results show that bistability and symmetric deformation can be achieved when there are flexible hinges at the boundary and input. In addition, the presented finite element model provides good agreement with experimental results.
