This research investigates a quasi-zero stiffness (QZS) property from the pressurized fluidic origami cellular solid, and examines how this QZS property can be harnessed for low-frequency base excitation isolation. The QZS property originates from the nonlinear geometric relations between folding and internal volume change, and it is directly correlated to the design parameters of the constituent Miura-Ori sheets. Two different structures are studied to obtain a design guideline for achieving QZS: one is identical stacked Miura-Ori sheets (ismo) and the other is non-identical stacked Miura-Ori sheets (nismo). Further dynamic analyses based on numerical simulation and harmonic balance method, indicate that the QZS from pressurized fluidic origami can achieve effective base excitation isolation at low frequencies. Results of this study can become the foundation of origami-inspired metamaterials and metastructures with embedded dynamic functionalities.
