A continuum model of passive vibrissae
A passive vibrissa is modeled as an elastic bending rod that interacts with a rigid obstacle in the plane. Aim is to see details of what happens in quasistatically scanning the obstacle. To this end the differential equations emerging from Bernoulli's rod theory are solved by elliptiv integrals followed by numerical evaluations.
