Basile Audoly, directeur de recherche au laboratoire LMS (École Polytechnique/CNRS/École des Mines), interviendra lors du séminaire.



We present a general method for deriving one-dimensional models for non-linear structures, that capture the strain energy associated not only with the macroscopic strain as in traditional structural models, but also with the strain gradient. The method is based on a two-scale expansion, and is asymptotically exact. It is applied to various types of non-linear structures featuring localization, such as a soft elastic beam that necks in the presence of surface tension, or a tape spring that snaps. In contrast to traditional models, the one-dimensional models obtained in this way can account for significant and non-uniform deformations of the cross-sections, and can therefore capture localization phenomena accurately.

Work in collaboration with Claire Lestringant (ETH, Switzerland).
