An asymptotic membrane model for wrinkling of very thin films

In this work, a formal deduction of a two-dimensional membrane theory, similar to Landau–Lifshitz model, is performed via an asymptotic development of the weak formulation of the three-dimensional equations of elasticity. Some interesting aspects of the deduced model are investigated, in particular the property of obtaining a hyperbolic equation for the out-of-plane displacement under a certain class of boundary conditions and loads. Some simple cases are analyzed to show the relevant aspects of the model and the phenomenology that can be addressed. In particular, it is shown how this mathematical formulation is capable to describe instabilities well known as wrinkling, often observed for the buckling of very thin membranes.
