Prestress Design of Tensegrity Structures Using Semidefinite Programming

Finding appropriate prestresses which can stabilize the system is a key step in the design of tensegrity structures. A semidefinite programming- (SDP-) based approach is developed in this paper to determine appropriate prestresses for tensegrity structures. Three different stability criteria of tens...
