Abstract

Effects of torsional loading in an axisymmetric micropolar elastic half-space are studied. The components of microrotation displacement, force stress and couple stress are obtained for a half-space subjected to an arbitrary load produced by shearing stress. A special case of a particular type of twist has been discussed in detail for a specific model and the micropolar effects have been shown graphically.
