@inproceedings{Pezzulla2021AGE, title={A geometrically exact model for thin magneto-elastic shells}, author={Matteo Pezzulla and Dong Jin Yan and Pedro M. Reis}, year={2021} }

We develop a reduced model for hard-magnetic, thin, linear-elastic shells that can be actuated through an external magnetic field, with geometrically exact strain measures. Assuming a reduced kinematics based on the Kirchhoff-Love assumption, we derive a reduced two-dimensional magneto-elastic energy that can be minimized through numerical analysis. In parallel, we simplify the reduced energy by expanding it up to the second order in the displacement field and provide a physical interpretation…

This work develops a theoretical model for thin magnetic elastic shells, which rationalizes the underlying mechanism, in excellent agreement with experiments, and presents a robust mechanism to dynamically tune the buckling strength of shells, exploiting the coupling between mechanics and magnetism.

A magnetic “stick–slip” model is proposed to explain the sudden bending transition of an elastic rod experiencing a uniform induction field applied at a normal angle with respect to its long axis and it is demonstrated that the magnetoelastic buckling corresponds to a classical Landau second-order transition.
