Abstract

Miura-ori is a Japanese folding technique named after Prof. Koryo Miura, the University of Tokyo. It is used for solar panels because it can be unfolded into its rectangular shape by pulling on one corner only. On the other hand it is used as kernel to stiffen sandwich structures. In this paper some insight will be given into the geometric structure of this folding method combined with an outlook to analogues and generalizations.
