De, Rumi and Ananthakrishna, G (2005) Missing physics in stick-slip dynamics of a model for peeling of an adhesive tape. In: Physical Review E, 71 (5).
It is now known that the equations of motion for the contact point during peeling of an adhesive tape mounted on a roll introduced earlier are singular and do not support dynamical jumps across the two stable branches of the peel force function. By including the kinetic energy of the tape in the Lagrangian, we derive equations of motion that support stick-slip jumps as a natural consequence of the inherent dynamics. In the low mass limit, these equations reproduce solutions obtained using a differential-algebraic algorithm introduced for the earlier equations. Our analysis also shows that the mass of the ribbon has a strong influence on the nature of the dynamics.
