Abstract

Critical values of the pressure leading to self-contact in a flexible and inextensible loop subjected to uniform hydrostatic pressure have been predicted using variants and approximations of the harmonic balance method. Moreover, a modified perturbation method has been employed that has shown some advantages over conventional perturbation approach to the problem. A comprehensive comparison is made between the results we obtained using various techniques and the existing reported results for different pressure loadings and rotational symmetries.
