Title (EN) A HIGH-STIFFNESS, LIGHTWEIGHT BEAM STRUCTURE
(FR) STRUCTURE DE POUTRE LÉGÈRE, HAUTEMENT RIGIDE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A lightweight, high-stiffness structural beam having a web and a chord, which features a cross-sectional geometry featuring a plurality of sides arranged in an asymmetrical, non-closed, convex polygon shape. At least three of the sides of the chord are substantially parallel to one another, and are substantially perpendicular to the web. The beam is easily manufactured using fully-automated fabrication machinery and may serve as the main, flexure-resistant structural component of a sunlight-concentrating photovoltaic module.
(FR)L’invention concerne une poutre structurelle légère, hautement rigide, dotée d’une âme et d’une membrure, représentant une géométrie transversale dotée de plusieurs côtés, disposés selon une forme asymétrique, polygonale convexe, non fermée. Au moins trois des côtés de la membrure sont sensiblement parallèles les uns aux autres, et sont sensiblement perpendiculaires à l’âme. La poutre est facile à fabriquer en utilisant des machines de fabrication totalement automatisées et peut servir de composant structurel principal, résistant à la flexion, d’un module photovoltaïque concentrant la lumière du soleil.
