Title (EN) A COLLAPSIBLE STRUCTURAL ELEMENT
(FR) ELEMENT STRUCTURAL PLIABLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A collapsible beam element is provided, including: (a) an elongated flexible structural member having a predetermined cross section; and (b) a hollow defined by the cross section of the flexible structural member, wherein the flexible structural member is collapsible so as to enable folding of the beam element from an open configuration into a packed configuration, and wherein the flexible structural member readopts the predetermined cross section when unfolding the beam element from a packed configuration into an open configuration. The beam element is preferably made of material having predetermined shape. The beam element may be used so as to construct any collapsible three dimensional construction. Amongst other possibilities, the beam element may be used as a stretcher beam or a ladder or bridge beam.
(FR)Elément structural pliable comprenant (a) un élément structural souple allongé possédant une section transversale prédéterminée et (b) un creux défini par la section transversale de cet élément structural souple, ce dernier pouvant être replié, de manière à plier l'élément structural depuis une configuration ouverte en une configuration fermée. L'élément structural souple reprend sa section transversale prédéterminée quand on le déplie depuis sa configuration repliée jusqu'à sa configuration ouverte. Cet élément, sous forme de poutre, est, de préférence, constitué par un matériau possédant une forme prédéterminée. On peut utiliser cet élément afin de réaliser toute construction tridimensionnelle repliable. Parmi d'autres possibilités, on peut l'utiliser en tant qu'élément de brancard, d'échelle ou de passerelle.
