Abstract

In this study, we modify multi-particle method, a calculation method for predicting membrane behaviour, for evaluating collision between membranes and the change in membrane compression and bending stiffness due to devices mounted on membrane. This modification is verified its validity by the consistency with the results of the experiments conducted in the previous study. Then, we investigate the changes in the deployment behaviour when the temperature and thickness of solar cells change.
