MACS > MAE Accordion Structure

February 6, 2019

We have developed a simple mountain-valley folding structure that actuates under oscillating magnetic fields. The structure is capable of large reversible deformations. The images below show a representative finite element simulation as well as a schematic of a kinematic model used to predict structure behavior.Read more here.
