Wrinkling structures at the rim of an initially stratched circular thin plate subjected to transverse pressure (2018)
Journal Article
Coman, C. D., & Bassom, A. P. (in press). Wrinkling structures at the rim of an initially stratched circular thin plate subjected to transverse pressure. SIAM Journal on Applied Mathematics, 78(2), doi:10.1137/17M1155193. ISSN 0036-1399

Short-wavelength wrinkles that appear on an initially stretched thin elastic plate under transverse loading are examined. As the degree of loading is increased so wrinkles appear and their structure at the onset of buckling takes on one of three dist... Read More

Eigen-transitions in cantilever cylindrical shells subjected to vertical edge loads (2018)
Journal Article
Coman, C. D., & Bassom, A. P. (in press). Eigen-transitions in cantilever cylindrical shells subjected to vertical edge loads. Mathematics and Mechanics of Solids, doi:10.1177/1081286517754133. ISSN 1081-2865

A thin cantilever cylindrical shell subjected to a transverse shear force at the free end can experience two distinct modes of buckling, depending on its relative thickness and length. If the former parameter is fixed then a short cylinder buckles in... Read More

On the asymptotic reduction of a bifurcation equation for edge-buckling instabilities (2017)
Journal Article
Coman, C. D. (2018). On the asymptotic reduction of a bifurcation equation for edge-buckling instabilities. Acta Mechanica, 229(3), doi:10.1007/s00707-017-2036-8. ISSN 0001-5970

Weakly clamped uniformly stretched thin elastic plates can experience edge buckling when subjected to a transverse pressure. This situation is revisited here for a circular plate, under the assumption of finite rotations and negligible bending stiffn... Read More
