Instability at the interface of bodies subjected to high-elastic deformations

  • 16 Accesses


The problem of instability at the interface of two elastic half-planes in compression is investigated within the framework of the plane problem of the stability of deformation of compressible and incompressible elastic bodies at finite subcritical strains [1, 2]. The results are obtained for the plane deformation of bodies with an arbitrary form of the elastic potential. Numerical examples are presented for high-elastic bodies with potentials of the Mooney and Treloar types.
