    Description

    Many engineering materials display a pronounced microstructure which must be taken into account in analysis. Examples of such materials are: wood, fiber reinforced polymers, foams, and ceramics, including cementitious materials. In this study, both micropolar and nonlocal effect are taken into consideration. Constitutive models for two-dimensional materials with square, equilateral, and hexagonal structure have been established.
