Abstract
This paper focuses on the influence of axial splicing interface parameters of the tensegrity structures on mechanical properties and rigidity of the structure. At first, the finite element method is applied to introduce the rigidity matrix, and deform it according to the constraint conditions and outer forces. In addition, establish the mathematical model of the structure and realize the automatic configuration based on axial splicing interface parameters. Finally, taking a double-unit structure for an example, obtain the relationship between interface parameters and rigidity. Through this paper, the most reasonable value range of unit overlap ratio and adjacent unit deflection angle of the axial splicing tensegrity structure are determined, which provides related research of tensegrity structure with the theoretical support.
