Folding instability of a layered viscoelastic medium under compression

  title={Folding instability of a layered viscoelastic medium under compression},
  author={Maurice A. Biot},
A preliminary theory is established for the stability of e visooelastio leyer sandwiched in an infinitely extended medium of another visooelastio materiel when s compressive force is acting in a direction parallel with the layer. The instability is menifested by e folding of the layer. It is shown that in general there exists e lower and & higher critical load between which folding occurs at a finite rate with a dominant wavelength. This is the wavelength whose amplitude increases at the… CONTINUE READING
