In the present paper on the basis of mathematical (asymptotic) confirmed hypotheses method, depending on the values of dimensionless physical parameters, mathematical models of micropolar elastic thin shells with free rotation, with constrained rotation, with “small transverse stiffness” are constructed. Transverse shear and related to them strains are completely taken into account in the suggested theories of micropolar shells. On the basis of these models specific problems of strength and dynamics of micropolar elastic thin shells, plates and bars can be studied.
