    • Wrinkles in soft dielectric plates 

      Su, Yipin; Conroy Broderick, Hannah; Chen, Weiqiu; Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2018-07-04)
      We show that a smooth giant voltage actuation of soft dielectric plates is not easily obtained in practice. In principle one can exploit, through pre-deformation, the snap-through behavior of their loading curve to deliver ...
    • Wrinkles in the opening angle method 

      Destrade, Michel; Lusetti, Irene; Mangan, Robert; Sigaeva, Taisiya (Elsevier, 2017-06-10)
      We investigate the stability of the deformation modeled by the opening angle method, often used to give a measure of residual stresses in arteries and other biological soft tubular structures. Specifically, we study the ...
    • Zhu reduction for Jacobi n-point functions and applications 

      Tuite, Michael P.; Krauel, Matthew; Bringmann, Kathrin (2017-06-23)
      We establish precise Zhu reduction formulas for Jacobi n-point functions which show the absence of any possible poles arising in these formulas. We then exploit this to produce results concerning the structure of strongly ...
