Origami, the art of paper folding, transforms a flat sheet into complex, active or passive art using sequential mathematically defined actions. The goal of this research is to develop methodologies and toolsets necessary to integrate physics-based considerations into these procedures, and thus afford a new design strategy to solve aerospace and challenges with mechanically relevant performance criteria that are faced by Air Force personnel.
