Memory from coupled instabilities in crumpled sheets

  title={Memory from coupled instabilities in crumpled sheets},
  author={Dor Shohat and Daniel Hexner and Yoav Lahini},
Crumpling an ordinary thin sheet transforms it into a structure with unusual mechanical behaviors, such as logarithmic relaxation, emission of crackling noise, and memory retention. A central challenge lies in understanding how these behaviors emerge from the underlying complex geometry. Here we combine global force measurements and 3D imaging to correlate the global mechanical response and the underlying geometric transformations. We find that the response of crumpled sheets to cyclic strain…

Mechanical annealing and memories in a disordered solid
Shearing a disordered or amorphous solid for many cycles with a constant strain amplitude can anneal it, relaxing a sample to a steady state that encodes a memory of that amplitude. This steady state

Complex pathways and memory in compressed corrugated sheets
T response of complex media to external driving is intermittent, featuring smooth reversible episodes, associated with a single (meta)stable state of the system, punctuated by sharp irreversible steps between states that together form a multi-step pathway.
