摘要

Inflatable structures made of flat film materials have an advantage of low cost, lightweight and rapid deployment, but the variation of their forms is relatively limited, and it is a challenge to produce pneumatic deformations. This paper proposes a designing and manufacturing process of inflatable structures which are made offlat film materials and are able to perform dynamic movements. The process includes steps in which a target 3D surface is produced through programmed 2D paths heat-sealed on flatfilms of different thickness, leading to a structure composed of air chambers. A parametric modelling procedure and associated principles are developed for the relationship between the forms of a flat-film-based inflatable structure and the heat sealing patterns on the film. A system of double-layer air chambers was designed to control the direction of bending movements. In addition, the form variation of a designed inflatable structure can be achieved by a parametric design process described in this paper.
