  1. Wang, C. G., Liu, Y. P., Wadee, M. K., Lan, L., & Tan, H. F. 2016. Torsional wrinkling behaviour of graphene rings. Submitted to Int. J. Non-Linear Mech. on 22 January 2016.


    This paper investigates the torsional wrinkling characteristics of graphene rings derived from non-dimensional nonlinear von Kàrmàn theory. The buckling behaviour including the wrinkling patterns and the post-wrinkling stresses are determined numerically by combining a compound series method with a finite difference method. The results show that wrinkle evolution is dominated by the post-wrinkling stress components along the wrinkle texture direction of the graphene ring. The value of the wrinkle level is close to that of the post-wrinkling stress level under the same torsion, which reveals a close interaction between the wrinkle pattern and the stress components. Compared with the results obtained by molecular dynamics simulations, the predicted ratio of the wrinkle amplitude to wavelength provides a direct understanding and a reliable accuracy of the post-wrinkling characteristics. In addition, the results in this work may provide good references to design and tune the properties of NEMS/MEMS based on the wrinkled graphene.
