Structural localization phenomena and the dynamical phase-space analogy
The localization of buckle patterns in elastic structures is reviewed from three complementary viewpoints: (a) from a modal perspective, (b) from a formulation which allows the amplitude to modulateExpand

Post-buckled propagation model for compressive fatigue of impact damaged laminates
An analytical model for prediction of compressive fatigue threshold strains in composite plates with barely visible impact damage (BVID) is presented. The model represents the complex damageExpand

Force-chain buckling in granular media: a structural mechanics perspective
Parallels are drawn between the response of a discrete strut on a linear elastic foundation and force-chain buckling in a constrained granular medium. Both systems buckle initially into periodicExpand

Kink Band Instability in Layered Structures
Abstract A recent two-dimensional prototype model for the initiation of kink banding in compressed layered structures is extended to embrace the two propagation mechanisms of band broadening and bandExpand

Homoclinic and Heteroclinic Orbits Underlying the Post-Buckling of axially Compressed Cylindrical Shells
Abstract A structural system with an unstable post-buckling response that subsequently restabilizes has the potential to exhibit homoclinic connections from the fundamental equilibrium state toExpand

The Maxwell stability criterion in pseudo-energy models of kink banding
Kink banding, common to many structures in nature and engineering, has several distinctive features---notably highly nonlinear snap-back instability leading to localization and sequential lock-up.Expand
