Uniaxial Stretching of a Rectangular Membrane

Application ID: 101881

This example demonstrates the wrinkling phenomenon in a thin sheet stretched uniaxially. The modified membrane theory, which incorporates the wrinkling model, ensures noncompressive principal stresses in the wrinkled region. The analytical results are compared to the numerical results.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
