N2 - Preassembled scissor structures are transportable and can be transformed rapidly while offering a huge volume expansion. Intended geometrical incompatibilities between the members during transformation can be introduced as a design strategy to obtain bistability, which allows instantaneously achieving some structural stability in the deployed state.

This contribution investigates the nonlinear structural behavior of bistable scissor structures during transformation using finite element models.
