Electromechanical Buckling of a Pre-Stressed Layer Bonded to an Elastic Foundation

S. Abu-Salih and D. Elata
Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, IL

Keywords: buckling, electrostatic instability, electromechanical buckling

Abstract:
The electromechanical buckling of a pre-stressed layer bonded to an elastic foundation is analyzed. A new analytic solution of the mechanical post-buckling is presented. In addition, it is shown that electrostatic forces can precipitately instigate buckling even when the pre-stress is lower than the critical value that allows mechanical buckling.
