    The curvature effects of interlayer van der Waals (vdW) forces on pressure-induced buckling of empty or filled double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) are studied for various radii, length-to-radius ratios, end conditions and internal-to-external pressure ratios. The analysis is based on a...

    The elastic-plastic stability of an annular plate under uniform radial loads applied at its edges is considered. Emphasis is laid on the non-axisymmetric buckling forms since the assumption of symmetric buckling does not necessarily lead to the lowest critical load. As a constitutive law...

    Nanotechnology is a field of applied science and technology covering a broad range of topics. The main unifying theme is the control of matter on a scale smaller than 1 micrometer, normally between 1-100 nanometers, as well as the fabrication of devices on this same length scale. Nanotechnology...

    Nanomechanical characterization of vertical well-aligned single-crystal ZnO nanowires on ZnO:Ga/glass templates was performed by nanoindentation technique. The buckling loads were found to be 1465 and 215 μN for the ZnO nanowires of 100 and 30 nm diameters, respectively. Furthermore, the...

    The limiting state of a multilayer eccentric ring made of a nonlinearly elastic material and subjected to a uniform external pressure is investigated. The topicality and importance of the problem are connected with the search for reserves of savings in materials, with a simultaneous in crease in...

    In this paper we study freely propagating inertial, i.e., unforced, waves, in an elastic beam constrained so that all motion takes place above and on a flat, rigid support surface, subject to a gravitational force and a compressive longitudinal load. Contact between the beam and the support...

    The authors develop a two-dimensional model for the extension and flexure response of electroelastic shells nnder biasing fields. Applications of the model in analyzing buckling of two circular cylindrical piezoelectric shells, one single-layered and the other double-layered, are included, and...

    An isosceles triangular frame with rotationally resistive joints under a tip load is studied. The large in-plane deformation elastica equations are formulated. A stability analysis shows that the frame can buckle symmetrically or asymmetrically. The post-buckling behavior showing limit load and...

    In the framework of nonlinear micropolar elasticity, the stability of a radially compressed circular plate made of foam is studied. It is assumed that the elastic properties of the plate vary through the thickness. For the case of axisymmetric buckling the linearized equilibrium equations are...
