    Abstract

    In this paper the mathematical model to perform the static analysis of a prestressed antiprism tensegrity structure subjected to an arbitrary reduction of its connecting ties is addressed. A virtual work approach is used to deduce the equilibrium equations and the numerical results are verified using a Newtonian approach. One example is provided to illustrate the mathematical model.
