Majumdar, A. and Prior, C. and Goriely, A. (2011) Stability estimates for a twisted rod under terminal loads: a three-dimensional study. Journal of Elasticity . (Submitted)
The stability of an inextensible unshearable elastic rod with quadratic strain energy density subject to end loads is considered. A self-contained proof in terms of local energy minimizers is presented and optimal bounds are obtained for the problem.
