2.5 Basic Tensegrity Structures: Conclusions

In this chapter, several simple tensegrity structures were examined and some methods presented for designing them. Future chapters build on this foundation as the design of more and more complex structures is explored. Cartesian methods are emphasized more and more and spherical trigonometry pretty much disappears from the scene as the most complex structures are analyzed. The nature of the problems seem to require this.
