Bifurcation of steel specimens

Kiyohiro Ikeda, Kazuo Murota

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Various deformation patterns of cylindrical sands were shown to be engendered by recursive bifurcation in Chap. 14. In this chapter, deformation patterns of rectangular parallelepiped steel specimens are investigated by obtaining the rule of recursive bifurcation for that is the direct product of O(2) and two reflection group. Fundamentals of group representation theory in Chap. 7 and group-theoretic bifurcation theory in Chap. 8 are foundations of this chapter.
