Energy distributions and effective temperatures in the packing of elastic sheets


The packing of elastic sheets is investigated in a quasi two-dimensional experimental setup: a sheet is pulled through a rigid hole acting as a container, so that its configuration is mostly prescribed by the cross-section of the sheet in the plane of the hole. The characterisation of the packed configuration is made possible by using refined image analysis… (More)
