Inhomogeneous Large Deformation Study of Temperature-Sensitive Hydrogel
We have recently published a paper in International Journal of
Solid and Structure (IJSS). In the paper, we construct and implement a finite
element method for temperature sensitive hydrogel. The simulation
result is compared with the existing experimental data and analytic solution. They are in
good agreement. Several numerical examples are provided to apply the method
in the explanation of various examples, including bifurcation, buckling of
membrane, buckling of thin film on compliant substrate and the opening and
closure of flowers.
