We catalogue configurations that locally minimize energy for a planar elastic rod (extensibleshearable or inextensible-unshearable) subject to arbitrary Dirichlet boundary conditions in position and orientation. Via a combination of analysis and computation, we determine several bifurcation surfaces in the 3-parameter space of boundary conditions and explore how they depend on the rod material parameters, including in the inextensible limit. For each possible boundary condition, we find all… CONTINUE READING
