  • Bimodular rubber buckles early in bending 

    Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D.; Motherway, Julie A. (Elsevier, 2009-12-03)
    A block of rubber eventually buckles under severe flexure, and several axial wrinkles appear on the inner curved face of the bent block. Experimental measurements reveal that the buckling occurs earlier - at lower compressive ...
  • Onset of non-linearity in the elastic bending of blocks 

    Destrade, Michel; Gilchrist, Michael D. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2013-01-25)
    The classical flexure problem of non-linear incompressible elasticity is revisited assuming that the bending angle suffered by the block is specified instead of the usual applied moment. The general moment-bending angle ...
