We provide a quantitative description of the helicoid-to-spiral transition in thin ribbons of nematic elastomers using an elementary calculation based on a Koiter-type plate with incompatible reference configuration. Our calculation confirms that such transition is ruled by the competition between stretching energy and bending energy.

Abstract

We provide a quantitative description of the helicoid-to-spiral transition in thin ribbons of nematic elastomers using an elementary calculation based on a Koiter-type plate with incompatible reference configuration. Our calculation confirms that such transition is ruled by the competition between stretching energy and bending energy.
