Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Tensegrity, tensional integrity or floating compression, is a structural principle based on the use of isolated components in compression inside a net of continuous tension, in such a way that the compressed members do not touch each other and the prestressed tensioned members delineate the system spatially. The term tensegrity was coined by Buckminster Fuller as a contraction of tensional integrity. The other denomination of tensegrity, floating compression, was used mainly by Kenneth Snelson.show more
