Zhigang Suo's picture

These notes are part of a course on advanced elasticity.  The notes recall several phenomena where both elasticity and surface energy are significant, including

  • Griffith crack
  • Adhesion of flexible structures
  • Wafer bonding
  • Contraction of a soft elastic sheet 

The notes also contain a formulation of combined surface energy and elasticity of finite deformation.  

You may also wish to follow the ongoing discussion on the topic.
