A thermoelastic instability problem for axially moving plates
Published inReports of the Department of Mathematical Information Technology. Series B, Scientific computing
Problems of stability and deformation of a moving web, traveling between a system of rollers at a constant velocity are considered. The plate is subjected to a combined thermomechanical loading, including pure mechanical in-plane tension and also centripetal forces. Thermal strains corresponding to thermal tension and bending of the plate are accounted for. The problem of out-of-plane thermomechanical divergence (buckling) is reduced to an eigenvalue problem, which is studied analytically.
