Analysis of the Mechanical Behaviour of an All-round Fully Adhesive Supported Absorber
This paper discusses the mechanical behaviour of an all-round fully adhesive supported absorber. Previous research is discussed and compared to the author's own results collected using both laboratory tests and simulation. The influence of the finite-element approach (i.e. geometrically linear or non-linear) was compared. The thermal deformation of a hyperstatic absorber was investigated. The relationship between thermal expansion and pressure change in a gas-filled collector is discussed.
