Recent advancements in biology and nanotechnology have prompted a speedily growing to be curiosity within the mechanics of skinny, versatile ribbons and Mobius bands.
This edited quantity includes English translations of 4 seminal papers in this subject, all initially written in German; of those, Michael A. Sadowsky released the 1st in 1929, through others in 1930, and Walter Wunderlich released the final in 1962.
The quantity additionally includes invited, peer-reviewed, unique learn articles on comparable topics.
Previously released within the magazine of Elasticity, quantity 119, factor 1-2, 2015.

Kirby · Eliot Fried Received: 7 November 2013 / Published online: 20 March 2014 © Springer Science+Business Media Dordrecht 2014 Abstract A Γ -convergence result involving the elastic bending energy of a narrow inextensible ribbon is established.
O. Kirby, E. Fried Given the centerline r, consider the energy of an elastic ribbon S of width 2w parameterized by x. Wunderlich  shows that the nonvanishing principal curvature κ1 of S is given by κ1 = κ(1 ˜ + η2 ) , |1 + ζ η| ˙ (9) where the dot denotes differentiation with respect to arclength. The bending energy E of S therefore takes the form E= D 2 S κ12 dA = D 2 w 0 −w κ˜ 2 (ξ )(1 + η2 (ξ ))2 dζ dξ, |1 + ζ η(ξ ˙ )| (10) where D is a measure of flexural rigidity. Evaluating the integral on the far right-hand side of (10) over the width 2w of the ribbon yields 2 E = Dw κ˜ 2 (ξ ) 1 + η2 (ξ ) g 2wη(ξ ˙ ) dξ, (11) 0 where g : R → [1, +∞] is defined by ⎧ ⎪ ⎨1, g(x) = x1 ln( 2+x ), 2−x ⎪ ⎩ +∞, if x = 0, if |x| < 2 and x = 0, if |x| ≥ 2.
