Patent Number Title Of Patent Date Issued
4509879 Joining system for triangulated structures April 9, 1985
The invention is directed to structural elements for use in triangulated structures, and structures assembled from such elements. In particular the invention provides an elongated structural element for use in a triangulated structural assembly, provided at at least one end thereof w
4081158 Monocoque arched kite March 28, 1978
The aerodynamic surface of the kite consists of a single sheet of stiff material arched about a longitudinal axis, being more highly arched at the front end than at the rear and having an aperture located predominantly on the rearward half. In a preferred embodiment, the kite is die cut
4018408 Concave parabolic arch kite April 19, 1977
A kite having separate forward and aft sails, each arched about a common longitudinal kite axis and each sail disposed concave downward in flight. The concave shape of the sail funnels the wind through the kite. Lift is derived from the central portions of the sail while the lateral port
3974600 Minimum inventory maximum diversity building system August 17, 1976
A modular structural system utilizes a limited inventory of framework elements which in combination with a limited number of interstitial exterior and interior panels can be utilized to erect a variety of integral structures in which the framework elements bear substantially all load
3948471 Modular kite system April 6, 1976
A kite having a prism-shaped three dimensional frame, spanned by aerodynamic surfaces on its two downward disposed faces. The top or upward disposed face is spanned by a novel aerodynamic surface called an air dam which operates to stabilize the flight of the kite while greatly incre
3937426 Tetrahedral kite structure February 10, 1976
A tetrahedral kite having a sail formed by a pair of sheets of rhombus shape that lie facewise against one another and are joined together along their edges. The middle of the rhombus-shaped sail is folded about an edge of the tetrahedral kite frame so that the sail portions one either s
3931697 Modular curved surface space structures January 13, 1976
A plurality of mathematically interrelated modular structures are disclosed which are based on a series of minimal surfaces bounded by skewed polygons. Some six basic modules are described which are capable of being interconnected in various combinations to form finite volume enclosing
