Keywords: Flexible hinges Folding and deployable structures Nonlinear bending Bending of thin-walled beams Brazier effect Brazier moment minimisation A B S T R A C T Flexible hinges enable the design of folding structures without using mechanisms by making use of intrinsic structural characteristics in the action of folding. This technology introduces potential benefits including weight reduction, omission of lubrication and potentially better system reliability.
