In this paper the mathematical model to perform the static analysis of an antiprism tensegrity structure subjected to a wide variety of external loads is addressed. The virtual work approach is used to deduce the equilibrium equations and a method based on the Newton’s Third Law to verify the numerical results is presented. In the second part of the paper several numerical examples are given.
