Abstract

There has been created Origami Structures that behaves as Auxetical on the three directions of the space independently on the direction and sense of the applied force.

This text was extracted from a PDF file.
This is the abbreviated version, containing approximately 100% of the total text.

This Brand of the investigation studies Origami due to the Auxetic properties that has been founded on some patterns. Auxetic properties are shown by those materials that when submitted into forces, they are deformed into a Negative Poisson Ratio behavior.

This property can be obtained in molecules crystals or even macroscopic structures.

It has been detected that some Origami Structures who has kinematical degree of freedom shown Auxetical behaviors in some direction of the space. Well known patterns as Miura is, shows Auxetical behavior in two direction of the space.

There has been created Origami Structures that behaves as Auxetical on the three directions of the space independently on the direction and sense of the applied force.
