Abstract: The asymptotic behavior of an elastic thin film penalized by a van der Wals type interfacial energy is investigated when both its thickness and the magnitude of the additional energy vanish in the limit. Keeping track of both mid-plane and out-of-plane deformations (through the introduction of the Cosserat vector), the resulting behavior strongly depends upon the ratio between thickness and interfacial energy.
