Bending and Stretching an Elastic Strip Around a Narrow Cylindrical Drum

by H. C. Lee, H. D. Conway
An analysis is made of the deflected forms assumed by an elastic strip when it is bent and stretched around a rigid drum. A summary is first given of the method of analysis used and the results obtained in a previous study where the drum width is equal to or greater than that of the strip. This work is then extended to the case where the strip width exceeds that of the drum. Deflected forms and contact regions are delineated for a strip-width/drum-width ratio of two and for various values of two parameters: anticlastic deformation and tension.
