Double-layer tensegrity grids (DLTGs) may be defined as
tensegrity spatial systems containing two parallel horizontal networks of
members in tension forming the top and bottom layers, whose nodes are linked
by vertical and/or inclined bracing members in compression and/or tension.
In this paper, a new approach is described. Conventional double-layer grids
(DLGs) are composed of three layers: top, bottom and bracing members. This
paper shows new rules for generating original DLGs following a recent
methodology for their composition, from the mosaic of the bracing members
and additional laws. Finally, from them, a new technique, known as Rot-
Umbela manipulation, is applied to obtain their tensegrity form, opening and
endless catalogue of DLTGs.
