• Stretch-induced compressive stress and wrinkling in elastic thin sheets 

    Nayyar, Vishal (2010-08)
    A finite element analysis approach is used to determine the susceptibility to wrinkles for thin sheets with clamped ends when subjected to tensile loading. The model problem chosen to do this analysis is the stretching of ...
  • Stretch-induced wrinkling of thin sheets 

    Nayyar, Vishal (2013-08)
    Thin sheets and membrane structures are widely used in space applications such as solar sails, sunshields and membrane optics. Surface flatness over a large area is one of the key requirements for many applications using ...
