Image Number 3 for United States Patent #4944687.
In a deformable system whereby electrical energy distribution conduits and conductors disposed longitudinally therein can be connected along a curved path, the system comprises a deformable central part containing a layer of conductors. Said central part comprises links hinged about axes parallel to the layer and perpendicular to the conductors, which latter are plastically deformable. They are solid conductors having a section which is flattened in the transverse direction of the layer of conductors. The said axes extend through the neutral axis of the conductors.Use to eliminate adverse elastic return movements of the system.
