1 Nature also uses the principle of folding to create light weight structures. Many plant leaves are unfolded while growing and thus stabilize large surfaces with a minimum of matter. Simplicity, homogeneity, flexibility and variety of forms, economy, and generation of complex geometries based on simple principles are the main characteristics of origami FOLDED PLATES ,40

2 A folded plate is an example of a 3-dimensional or space structure ,40

3  If the same piece of paper is folded then it will be capable of supporting one hundred times its own weight ,40

4 This problem can be rectified by using transverse stiffeners at the ends. The folded plate acts as a beam and can support even greater loads ,40

5 The result of this bending can be seen in the animation opposite ,40

7 Main structure of the port terminal is a folded plate structure that allows for minimal columns to create free flowing space while having the freedom to create a undulating landscaped roof for the pleasure and enjoyment by the public ,40

8 The earliest folded plate solutions […] drew from their close resemblance to corrugated plate and cylindrical shells. The underlying idea is quite simple: longer spans can be accommodated with relatively small increases in weight by enlarging the lever arm of the structure; the top and bottom chords of each slanted slab house the main reinforcements while the shear stresses are absorbed across the sloping sides ,40
