Abstract

Deployable structure system using flexible members is necessary to construct a large structure in the space. The flexible members easily buckle as seen in wrinkles and slack. Therefore, it is available at designing of spacecraft to grasp when, where and how large the buckling occurs in the entire structure during the deployment. When dynamic analysis of large flexible structures which can ignore bending is conducted, the truss element and the membrane element, which do not consider the bending of an element, are often used from the viewpoint of calculation cost. Therefore, this paper proposes a comprehensive and efficient visualization method of buckling occurrence region and buckling magnitude during dynamic response analysis using the truss element to progress convenience in design. The method proposed in this paper is based on two previous studies. The proposed method is verified by a simple truss model, and an application example is shown.
