The compression of a heavy floating elastic film

Abstract:

We study the effect of film density on the uniaxial compression of thin elastic films at a liquid-fluid interface. Using a combination of experiments and theory, we show that dense films first wrinkle and then fold as the compression is increased, similarly to what has been reported when the film density is neglected. However, we highlight the changes in the shape of the fold induced by the film's own weight and extend the model of Diamant and Witten [Phys. Rev. Lett., 2011, 107, 164302] to u...
