    Abstract

    This paper is an experimental and numerical investigation of the elastic decay of localised actuation in a tubular engineering origami system. A numerical model of a Miura-ori tube subject to localised actuation is developed, using experimentally determined material properties, and verified by comparing against a locally actuated experimental model. Results indicate that the ratio between the facet and folds stiffness influences the distance over which localised actuation decays in Miura-ori tubes. Furthermore, a `spring-back' effect is observed where an actuation causes an opposite sense deformation further along the tube.
