Asymptotic analysis for surfaces with large constant mean curvature and free boundaries
Annales de l'I.H.P. Analyse non linéaire, Volume 29 (2012) no. 1, p. 109-129

We prove that simply connected H-surfaces with bounded area and free boundary in a domain necessarily concentrate at a critical point of the mean curvature of the boundary of this domain.
