Origin of Unusually High Rigidity in Selected Helical Coil Structures

Origin of Unusually High Rigidity in Selected Helical Coil Structures Using continuum elasticity theory, we describe the elastic behavior of helical coils with an asymmetric double-helix structure and identify conditions under which they become very rigid. Theoretical insight gained for macrostructures including a stretched telephone cord and an unsupported helical staircase is universal and of interest for the elastic behavior of helical structures on the micrometer and nanometer scale. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Physical Review Applied American Physical Society (APS)

Abstract

Using continuum elasticity theory, we describe the elastic behavior of helical coils with an asymmetric double-helix structure and identify conditions under which they become very rigid. Theoretical insight gained for macrostructures including a stretched telephone cord and an unsupported helical staircase is universal and of interest for the elastic behavior of helical structures on the micrometer and nanometer scale.
