Paper Title:
Large Deployable Networks Constructed by Interconnected Bricard Linkages
  Abstract

This paper deals with large deployable networks constructed by interconnected Bricard linkages. Three kinds of tilings, which correspond to three kinds of deployable networks, are employed as the auxiliary tools for the arrangement of the basic deployable Bricard units. Joint connections between deployable units are designed in a special way so that links of the deployable units are deployable/foldable and do not suffer from interference. The CAD models are built to show the feasibility of the deployable networks presented in this paper.
