EN222: Mechanics of Solids Homework 8: More thin films Due Thursday April 20, 2006 Division of Engineering Brown University 1. An isotropic linear elastic circular plate with Poisson’s ratio ν, radius Rand thickness his heated to induce a temperature gradient 0( )2/T zT z h=through the thickness of the plate. Repeat the bifurcation calculation outlined in class to calculate a relationship between and the two principal curvatures in the plate. You should find that there are two possible solutions for
