  • Catastrophic thinning of dielectric elastomers 

    Zurlo, G.; Destrade, Michel; DeTommasi, M.; Puglisi, G. (American Physical Society, 2017-02-15)
    We provide an energetic insight into the catastrophic nature of thinning instability in soft electroactive elastomers. This phenomenon is a major obstacle to the development of giant actuators, yet it is neither completely ...
