Figure 14

Each graph represents an ensemble of 104 simulated microbending experiments illustrating the probabilistic spectrum of possible outcomes for different thickness of the bending beams.

Top left, d=100 μm; top right, d=10 μm; bottom left, d=1 μm; bottom right, d=0.1 μm; in the simulations, one end of the beams is clamped horizontally in the origin while a monotonically increasing torque is applied to the other end.
