Abstract
The integration of bending-active elements in kinematic form-active structures opens new perspectives for the development of transformable architectural applications, introducing new typologies and interesting structural concepts. Structures that combine the use of membrane materials and the concept of active bending are referred to as 'textile hybrids'. The complex interaction between the bending-active boundary elements and the membrane, but also the inherent high flexibility of both the membrane material and the bending-active elements, however, complicate the structural behaviour of the studied transformable textile hybrid. Therefore, an experimental verification of the structure becomes crucial to validate the results obtained through the numerical analysis and to allow a full understanding of the structural behaviour. This paper discusses the experimental set-up and investigation of a representative case study and compares the experimental results to the numerically obtained values.
