    Peña Villamil, Diana Maritza; Llorens Duran, Josep Ignasi de; Sastre Sastre, Ramon (2010-03)
    Article
    Open Access
    The purpose of this document is to study the application of Tensegrity principles on tensile textile constructions, which is one of points of the PhD Thesis that the author is writing under the tutorship of Prof. Josep ...
  • Deployable Arches Based on Regular Polygon Geometry 

    Torres Londoño, Natalia Paola; Peña Villamil, Diana Maritza (2017-02-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper discusses a deployable-arch-structure design that is built using articulated bars, commonly called a scissor-system, and is based on the regular polygon geometry. The deployed-arch shape can be determined by ...
  • Sustainability Assessment of Household Waste Based Solar Control Devices for Workshops in Primary Schools 

    Pons Valladares, Oriol; Habibi, Saeid; Peña Villamil, Diana Maritza (2018-11-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    Part of the large amounts of waste generated by human activities could have a second use while solving social problems. In this sense, the authors are carrying out a research project involving the participative development ...
  • Tensegrity ring for a sports arena formfinding and testing 

    Peña Villamil, Diana Maritza; Llorens Duran, Josep Ignasi de; Sastre Sastre, Ramon; Crespo Artiaga, Daniel; Tristancho Martínez, Joshua (2011)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The current prototype’s key contribution to the field of light-weight structures is that it is the first time that a pure tensegrity ring has been used in place of a compression ring. This design features a cladding ...
