Asymptotic analysis of bar systems. II. (English) Zbl 0924.73021
In Part I [see the foregoing entry], the author studied a thin bar with elasticity coefficients periodic in the longitudinal direction and obtained a formal asymptotic expansion of infinite order. The present paper is the sequel of this former study. It begins (Section 2.6) with a rather technical justification of the asymptotics previously obtained. In Section 3, the author considers an elastic plate, infinite and periodic in the \(x_2\) direction, clamped in the \(x_1 \) direction and small in the \(x_3\) direction. He gives a formal inner asymptotic expansion of infinite order and boundary layer correctors and establishes the structure of the matrices involved. Then he extends these results to nonstationary elasticity in a bar and to a weakly compressed bar.
