A closer look at the pelvis suggests that ilium and the sacrum together can be usefully modeled as a section of an octet truss. Continue reading Tensegrity pelvis: Ilium and sacrum modeled as a section of an octet truss
This image of the pelvis is based on the recognition that the pelvic girdle can be described modelled as an octet truss. Continue reading T-Pelvis _ IMG_0830_28_29_31_33_34_35_36_37_38_39
This is a model of the pelvis combined with a Proto type spine from 2004. The pelvis is a crude approximation of How force vectors in the pelvis operate and I found a way to connect it to rudimentary spine. This spine was an early attempt to utilize stellated tetrahedrons as individual vertebrae that were then linked together with tensioned ‘saddle slings’ to form a tensegrity mast. Later models of the pelvis became more realistic.
