Spatial chaos and localization phenomena in nonlinear elasticity


Journal Article

Classical static-dynamic analogies are invoked to demonstrate spatial chaos and localization of deformations in the elastica of a post-buckled strut. Some conjectures are then made relating homoclinic events in the dynamic analogy of a strut on a nonlinear elastic foundation to the spatial localization of the buckling pattern. © 1988.
