J. Appl. Mech 82(3), 034501 (Mar 01, 2015) (3 pages) Paper No: JAM-14-1402; doi: 10.1115/1.4029549 History: Received August 29, 2014; Revised January 07, 2015; Online January 23, 2015

The linear stability of the surface of a transversally isotropic cylinder submitted to uniaxial stress has been theoretically investigated with respect to the development by surface diffusion of longitudinal fluctuations of its radius. The effect of stress has been characterized on the instability threshold.
