In this paper, quasi-static out-of-plane compression behaviors of Miura-ori patterned sheets were investigated numerically by using finite element analysis (FEA). The simulation results show a reasonable agreement with the experimental results. In addition, the parametric analysis of the Miura-ori patterned sheets with different cell wall thicknesses, side lengths, dihedral angles and sector angles were carried out using FEA method. The influences of different parameters on the peak force and mean force were determined.
