This week Professor Dominic Vella will talk about wrinkling
In this talk I will provide an overview of recent work on the wrinkling of thin elastic objects. In particular, the focus of the talk will be on answering questions that arise in recent applications that seek not to avoid, but rather, exploit wrinkling. Such applications usually take place far beyond the threshold of instability and so key themes will be the limitations of “standard” instability analysis, as well as what analysis should be performed instead. I will discuss the essential ingredients of this ‘Far-from-Threshold’ analysis, as well as outlining some open questions.
