What is it about?

This original article was an overview of the use of the strut-on-foundation model as a way of explaining observed phenomena in various physical systems.

Why is it important?

I was asked to write a review for a book by its editors which was to be a collection of published papers on localized buckling and the eponymous model formed the basis of studies in various physical fields. I tried to bring together various ideas from other authors and to suggest areas which may be fruitful in future studies.

I enjoyed writing this review as it gave me an opportunity to step back and to reflect on the state of the art of localized buckling at the time.
