A comparison of models of a folded plate
Department of Mathematics, Georgetown University Washington,DC 20057 USA
Two mathematical models of the junction region between two elastic plates will be compared. One of the models is due to H. Le Dret and was derived in the spirit of the Ciarlet-Destuynder method of asymptotic expansions. The other utilizes a classical Lagrangian formulation and is based on a certain type of geometric modeling. It is shown that in the case of a right-angle folded plate with "simple clamping,'' the two approaches give rise to one and the same model.
