Evaluating the snappability of bar-joint frameworks

18 Mar 2020 Nawratil Georg

It is well-known that there exist bar-joint frameworks (without continuous flexions) whose physical models can snap between different realizations due to non-destructive elastic deformations of material. We present a method to measure these snapping capability -- shortly called snappability -- based on the total elastic strain energy of the framework by computing the deformation of all bars using Hook's law...
