Abstract

A numerical approach is presented to find the equilibrium solutions of a soap film spanning a flexible but inextensible boundary (Giomi and Mahadevan 2012). Various shapes of the soap films are quantified in terms of a dimensionless parameter. Numerical stability and bifurcation analysis is performed. Specifically, estimates of two critical values of the bifurcation parameter responsible for the onset of non-planar shape and first self contact in plane are provided. These two critical values are not known analytically.
