Summary: [For the entire collection see Zbl 0664.00003.]
We consider a problem in three-dimensional linearized elasticity, posed over a domain consisting of a plate with thickness \(2\epsilon\), inserted into a solid whose Lamé constants are independent of \(\epsilon\). If the Lamé constants of the material constituting the plate vary as \(\epsilon^{-3}\), the solution of the three-dimensional problem converges, as \(\epsilon\) approaches zero, to the solution of a coupled, “pluri-dimensional” problem of a new type, posed simultaneously over a three-dimensional open set with a slit and a two-dimensional open set. Other problems are also amenable to the same method, such as junctions between plates and rods, and folded plates.
