The indentation of pressurized elastic shells: From polymeric capsules to yeast cells

Abstract:

Pressurized elastic capsules arise at scales ranging from the 10 m diameter pressure vessels used to store propane at oil refineries to the microscopic polymeric capsules that may be used in drug delivery. Nature also makes extensive use of pressurized elastic capsules: plant cells, bacteria and fungi have stiff walls, which are subject to an internal turgor pressure. Here we present theoretical, numerical and experimental investigations of the indentation of a linearly elastic shell subject ...
