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.
