Tensegrity structures are typically lighter and cheaper to construct than traditional bridges, making them more environmentally friendly. They can withstand dynamic loads, including high winds and earthquakes while remaining stable and flexible. Their self-stressed and flexible nature allows them to accommodate higher loads with ease. The characteristic deployable feature of tensegrities can also be exploited by tweaking the prestress forces in its dedicated tension and compression members and allowing it to assume different stable states. This makes them ideal for utility bridges, which require a high degree of stability to support critical utility lines. Tensegrity structures are easy to construct and can assume different stable states, making them practical, reliable, and cost-efficient alternatives for various structural applications, including utility bridges.
