Description

Design parameters of the flasher pattern can be modified to meet a variety of design objectives for deployable array applications. The focus of this paper is to improve understanding of design parameters, objectives, and trade offs of origami flasher pattern configurations. Emphasis is placed on finite-thickness flasher models suitable for engineering applications. The methods presented aim to provide clarity on the effects of tuning flasher parameters based on existing synthesis tools. An optimization technique is implemented and results are presented to converge on optimal design parameters for a specific case study. Lastly, an approach used to develop thick flasher arrays is presented. This work is influence by methods developed by Zirbel et al. which pioneered the development of thick folding flashers [1].
