Abstract

The wrinkling instability of a pre-stressed annular membrane loaded uniformly along its inner boundary is investigated with the help of a tension field theory. The theoretical solution is shown to capture the essential qualitative features involved in axisymmetric wrinkling, but displays several limitations regarding the quantitative aspects of this issue. The relationship with some related experimental work reported recently in the literature is also discussed.
