Original Abstract

The tensegrity framework consists of both compression members (struts) and tensile members (tendons) in a specific topology stabilized by induced prestress. Tensegrity plays a vital role in technological advancement of mankind in many fields ranging from architecture to biology. In Part I of this two-part article, we have reviewed topological classification of elementary cells of tensegrity structures including rhombic, circuit and Z type configuration. Further, different types of tensegrities created on the basis of these configurations are studied and analysed, for instance Tensegrity prism, Diamond tensegrity, and Zig-zag tensegrity. The Part II focuses on applications of the tensegrity principle in construction of double layer high frequency tensegrity spheres
