    • Gent models for the inflation of spherical balloons 

      Mangan, Robert; Destrade, Michel (Elsevier, 2015)
      We revisit an iconic deformation of non-linear elasticity: the inflation of a rubber spherical thin shell. We use the 3-parameter Mooney and Gent-Gent (GG) phenomenological models to explain the stretch-strain curve of a ...
    • Initial stress symmetry and its applications in elasticity 

      Gower, Artur Lewis; Destrade, Michel (The Royal Society, 2015-10-28)
      An initial stress within a solid can arise to support external loads or from processes such as thermal expansion in inert matter or growth and remodelling in living materials. For this reason, it is useful to develop a ...
