Micropolar continuum mechanics is more profound than classical continuum mechanics

This paper expounds the characteristic features of the micropolar continuum theory by developing micropolar continuum models for the static, dynamic and buckling analysis of beam-like or plate-like lattices with rigid joints, by analysing the Newton-micropolar stratified fluid model for blood and by producing experimental proofs demonstrating the micropolar property for human compact bone. In particular, it explains from the point of view of application that the micropolar continuum mechanics is a theory more profound than classical continuum mechanics. Presented in this paper is also a description of some recent advances in applications.
