The tangential derivatives are taken with respect to two isometric orthogonal rectilinear coordinates that are tangential to the membrane at the point where the divergence is evaluated. , [17, 96, 71]). 3 Ø Ø, where is and find that the two-dimensional curvature tension is given by the curvature of the membrane in the ÜÝ plane. 10) vanishes and confirms that the tension tensor is symmetric. Similar results are obtained for an axisymmetric membrane. 2 requires that the membrane tensions and bending moments be extended into the whole space in an appropriate fashion.

A probable cause is local thinning due to excessive stretching. More recently, an extensive study has been conducted for spherical capsules enclosed by polyamide membranes [41, 48]. These investigations complement and extend the earlier work of Chang & Olbricht [13], in that the value of the membrane elastic modulus is controlled by means of the polymerization time. 2N/m for high polymerization times. In these experiments, the capsule is subjected to a simple shear flow in a Couetteflow device, and the capsule profile is observed perpendicular to the transverse Ü¿ axis.
