Bifurcation of a solid circular elastic cylinder under finite extension and torsion. (English) Zbl 0771.73030
Summary: The problem of bifurcation of a solid circular cylinder subjected to finite extension and torsion is investigated using the theory of small deformations superposed on large elastic deformations. The material of the cylinder is assumed to be isotropic, elastic, homogeneous and incompressible. A numerical scheme is adopted to solve the system of partial differential equations and the associated boundary conditions governing the problem for a class of strain-energy functions. The numerical results obtained determined the critical twist corresponding to a given extension of the cylinder.
