Zginanie pręta silnie zakrzywionego z uwzględnieniem naprężeń momentowych

Marian Piszczek, Gwidon Szefer
In order so solve the problem outlined in the title, the Airy-Mindlin stress function is applied; the problem is solved witin the general couple-stress theory with independent rotations. An exact, closed-form solution is derived. Numerical examples concerning various dimensions of the beam are presented. In absence of any information concerning the values of elastic constants in the Cosserat media considered in the paper, the corresponding values for the media with constrained rotations have to be used.
