On the deformation of slender filaments with planar crimp: theory, numerical solution and applications to tendon collagen and textile materials
Tensile deformation of a slender filament crimped into the form of a plane wave is analysed in terms of the theory of extensible planar elasticas. The load-extension relation is shown to beExpand

On the deformation of slender filaments with planar crimp: theory, numerical solution and applications to tendon collagen and textile materials
Mammalian tendon consists largely of aligned collagen fibres, in the shape of planar waves. Deformation occurs by extension parallel to the axes of the waves. The mechanics of this problem have beenExpand

A Mechanical Model of Helical Elements in Textured Yarns
The helical model of the spontaneously collapsed filaments in twist-textured yarns is defined as reflecting the limiting case of a free-filament segment with infinite length (or number of coils)Expand
