dc.description.abstractThis article-based thesis comprises a collection of four articles, each of which constitutes a chapter written and formatted in manuscript form. The general aim underlying these articles is to understand and predict how incremental elastic surface waves propagate or static wrinkles form on a deformed elastic substrate. The formation of these small-amplitude disturbances can be the end goal, such as in sending signals or creating functional coatings, or they can be used to measure and characterise the underlying elastic substrate. This thesis focuses on using surface waves or static wrinkles to characterise soft solids, such as biological tissues.en_US

dc.local.noteIn the study of small motions and deformations, the small-amplitude disturbances can be the end goal, such as in sending signals or creating functional coatings, or they can even be used to measure and characterise the underlying elastic substrate. Either way, these disturbances are dependent on the properties of the elastic solid. The solids considered in this dissertation can sustain large strains, and for this reason the thesis is based on nonlinear elasticity and its applications.en_US
