Rippling under pressure - when layered materials are pushed to the brink

By studying the behavior of a deck of cards, and stacks of other materials, like steel and aluminum, scientists are proving the existence of a buckling phenomenon that happens inside layered materials when they are put under pressure. The discovery could shape the way researchers study the way things deform under pressure.
