Remarks on robustness of stability with respect to thickness for elastic structures
Department of Mathematics 1326 Stevenson Center Vanderbilt University Nashville, TN 37240
Models of elastic systems are often inherently dependent upon small parameters such as thickness. Using the results on the original model to obtain information on the system as the thickness tends to zero can be far from straightforward. An illustration of stability results and discussion of the difficulties that arise in deriving stability for the limiting system are presented.
