General Theorems of Linear Micropolar Elasticity

  • Witold Nowacki
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 25)


The classical theory of elasticity is based on an ideal model of an elastic, continuous medium in which the loadings are transmitted through an area element αA in the body by means of the stress vector only.
