Abstract
Recently, natural disasters such as earthquake, tsunami, typhoon and tornado are increasing, and cause huge economical loses and victim. Thus, when the disaster occurs, it is important to prepare emergency evacuation shelters for fast and easy construction compared to general building system. And, deployable structures will provide a great help for such aim. Deployable structures have the great advantage of being faster and easier to erect and dismantle compared to conventional building forms. In this study, we confirm the possibility of deployment for scissor structures through mock-up test on a Basic Model and an Advanced Model using Geodesic grid. Therefore, a grid was developed, which can be applied to the shelter structure by decreasing the number of the members through changes in the lengths of the members. The Basic Model was conducted by optimizing the grid according to the specifications of the shelter structure based on the Geodesic grid, and applying the slots to the members.
