    • A wave near the edge of a circular disk 

      Destrade, Michel (2008)
      It is shown that in the Love-Kirchhoff plate theory, an edge wave can travel in a circular thin disk made of an isotropic elastic material. This disk edge wave turns out to be faster than the classic flexural acoustic wave ...
    • Waves and vibrations in a solid of second grade 

      Destrade, Michel; Saccomandi, Giuseppe (World Scientific, 2006)
      We study the viscoelastic second grade solid, for which the constitutive equation consists in the sum of a purely elastic part and a viscoelastic part; this latter part is specified by two microstructural coefficients ...
    • Weierstrass's criterion and compact solitary waves 

      Destrade, Michel (American Physical Society, 2007-04-17)
      Weierstrass's theory is a standard qualitative tool for single degree of freedom equations, used in classical mechanics and in many textbooks. In this Brief Report we show how a simple generalization of this tool makes it ...
    • The weighted fusion category algebra and the $q$-Schur algebra for $\rm GL_2(q)$ 

      Park, Sejong (ScienceDirect, 2008-01)
      [no abstract available]
    • Wireless communicative stent for follow-up of abdominal aortic aneurysm, 

      Destrade, Michel (IEEE, 2006)
      An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a dilatation of the aorta at the abdominal level, which rupture is a life threatening complication. Recent treatment of AAA consists in endovascular treatment with covered stent grafts. ...
    • Wrinkles and creases in the bending, unbending and eversion of soft sectors 

      Sigaeva, Taisiya; Mangan, Robert; Vergori, Luigi; Destrade, Michel; Sudak, Les (The Royal Society, 2018-03-23)
      We study what is clearly one of the most common modes of deformation found in nature, science and engineering, namely the large elastic bending of curved structures, as well as its inverse, unbending, which can be brought ...
    • 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 ...
