Necked states of non-linearly elastic plates

  • Pablo V. Negrón-Marrero (a1)


In this paper we study the equilibrium equations for axisymmetric deformations of isotropic circular plates in tension. We give results on the global multiplicity of solutions and study the stability of the trivial homogeneous solution for large displacements.
