abstract

The computation of the equilibrium configurations of tensegrity mechanisms is often a very tedious task even for relatively simple architectures. However, it has been observed that the complexity of this problem is significantly reduced when gravitational loads are compensated with the use of static balancing techniques. In this work, the general static balancing conditions are adapted for the case of tensegrity mechanisms. Afterwards, the modified conditions are applied to two new spatial three-degree-of-freedom tensegrity mechanisms.
