Stochastic homogeneous hyperelastic solids are characterized by strain-energy densities where the parameters are random variables defined by probability density functions. These models allow for the propagation of uncertainties from input data to output quantities of interest. To investigate the effect of probabilistic parameters on predicted mechanical responses, we study radial oscillations of cylindrical and spherical shells of stochastic incompressible isotropic hyperelastic material… 

Likely cavitation and radial motion of stochastic elastic spheres

Here, this problem within the context of ``stochastic elasticity'' where the elastic parameters are characterised by probability density functions is studied, and it is shown that the material at the centre determines the critical load at which a spherical cavity forms there.

Likely chirality of stochastic anisotropic hyperelastic tubes

International Journal of Non-Linear Mechanics Likely chirality of stochastic anisotropic hyperelastic tubes

When an elastic tube reinforced with helical fibres is inflated, its ends rotate. In large deformations, the amount and chirality of rotation is highly non-trivial, as it depends on the choice of

Likely striping in stochastic nematic elastomers

For monodomain nematic elastomers, we construct generalised elastic–nematic constitutive models combining purely elastic and neoclassical-type strain energy densities. Inspired by recent developments

Uncertainty quantification of elastic material responses: testing, stochastic calibration and Bayesian model selection

Motivated by the need to quantify uncertainties in the mechanical behaviour of solid materials, we perform simple uniaxial tensile tests on a manufactured rubber-like material that provide critical

Instabilities in liquid crystal elastomers

Stability is an important and fruitful avenue of research for liquid crystal elastomers. At constant temperature, upon stretching, the homogeneous state of a nematic body becomes unstable, and

Debonding and stretching of biogenic cellular structures

Plant material can regulate the mechanical properties of its cellular structure by changing: (i) the structure of the cell wall, (ii) the cell core pressure, and (iii) the cell-cell cohesion. The



Likely equilibria of stochastic hyperelastic spherical shells and tubes

In large deformations, internally pressurised elastic spherical shells and tubes may undergo a limit-point, or inflation, instability manifested by a rapid transition in which their radii suddenly

Small amplitude radial oscillations of an incompressible, isotropic elastic spherical shell

The small amplitude radial oscillation and infinitesimal stability about an equilibrium configuration of an arbitrary incompressible, isotropic and homogeneous elastic spherical shell under constant

Likely equilibria of the stochastic Rivlin cube

The stochastic version of the Rivlin cube is considered, where the elastic parameters are random variables following standard probability laws, and the problem is to derive the probability distribution of deformations, given the variability of the parameters.

Stochastic modeling of the Ogden class of stored energy functions for hyperelastic materials: the compressible case

This paper is devoted to the modeling of compressible hyperelastic materials whose response functions exhibit uncertainties at some scale of interest. The construction of parametric probabilistic

Controllability Conditions of Finite Oscillations of Hyper-Elastic Cylindrical Tubes Composed of a Class of Ogden Material Models

In this paper, the dynamic inflation problems are examined for infinitely long cylindrical tubes composed of a class of transversely isotropic incompressible Ogden material models. The inner surface

Likely Cavitation in Stochastic Elasticity

We revisit the classic problem of elastic cavitation within the framework of stochastic elasticity. For the deterministic elastic problem, involving homogeneous isotropic incompressible hyperelastic
