We study the large-displacement behavior of a thin annulus subjected to thermal gradients. Following axisymmetrical deflections, the annulus buckles into a periodic mode shape, which eventually forms a number of a radial curls under sustained heating. We predict the number of curls using a simple plate-buckling analogy and an approximate energy method.
