title = "Large Oscillations Around Curled Equilibrium Configurations of Uniformly Loaded Euler–Bernoulli Beams: Numerical and Experimental Evidences",

abstract = "In this paper, we show that equilibrium configurations of a clamped beam under distributed load, resembling a curled pending wire—whose existence has been mathematically established—can be obtained experimentally using {\textquoteleft}soft{\textquoteright} beams, i.e. beams for which the ratio between amplitude of the load and bending stiffness is large enough. Moreover, we introduce a Hencky-type discrete model, i.e. a finite dimensional Lagrangian model, for the {\textquoteleft}soft{\textquoteright} Elastica and build a numerical code for determining its motion, in the most general nonlinear regime. This code is able to qualitatively describe observed nonlinear dynamical behavior.",
