Equations for the Filled Inelastic Membrane: A More General Derivation
Deakin, Michael A. B.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v42 n3 p385-388 Apr 2011
An earlier paper discussed the case of a flexible but inextensible membrane filled to capacity with incompressible fluid. It was found that the resulting shape satisfies a set of three simultaneous partial differential equations. This article gives a more general derivation of these equations and shows their form in an interesting special case.
