There is no rigorous theoretical derivation for the spring constants that can be referenced here. The equations used are based on the asymptotic values explained in the article and its behavior for other Poisson’s ratio values.

I was just wondering where the formulations for the spring constant per area came from? I would like to get some more understanding about how they are formulated

Thanks,

Thin elastic layer can be used for structural analysis of thin layers. Similar boundary conditions exist for other types of physics like, Distributed impedance in Electric currents physics or Distributed capacitance in Electrostatics physics. If you have further questions about the use of COMSOL in the analysis you are doing, please contact us by emailing your question to us at support@comsol.com.

I would like to know if I can use the thin elastic layer property to model compliant, ie. elastic electrodes for a capacitor. I should be able to specify the conductivity also.

Thank you
