The theory of transverse bending of plates with asymmetric elasticity

  • S. A. Ambartsumian


The problems of bending plates made of various types of composites can be solved efficiently using Cosserat's theory. An approximate theory, reducing three-dimensional equations of the asymmetric theory of elasticity of solids to two-dimensional equations of plate theory has been formulated.
