Post-wrinkle bifurcations in elastic bilayers with modest contrast in modulus

Abstract

Wrinkles, folds, creases and other elastic surface instabilities play a crucial role in many systems in nature and engineering. While surface instabilities of ideal bilayer structures with large contrasts in elastic stiffness are well understood, many natural and man-made structures are far from this ideal. To better understand the behavior of systems with… (More)
