    • Stability analysis of charge-controlled soft dielectric plates 

      Conroy Broderick, Hannah; Righi, Michele; Destrade, Michel; Ogden, Ray W. (Elsevier, 2020-04-06)
      We examine the stability of a soft dielectric plate deformed by the coupled effects of a mechanical pre-stress applied on its lateral faces and an electric field applied through its thickness under charge control. The ...
    • 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 ...
