... elastica. Experiments are conducted on strips of transparency film. For a sufficiently large gap between the fixed end and the internal support, the strip slips through the gap and collapses downward. For moderate gaps, two continuous ranges of equilibrium shapes exist, one with relatively small...

.... The critical overhang length depends on (a) the length, weight per unit length, and bending stiffness of the strip, (b) the coefficients of friction (CoFs) between the strip and both the surface and its edge, and (c) the inclination of the surface. The strip is modeled as an inextensible elastica. A shooting...
