Point defects as sources of micropolar effects in elastic continua

G. Vörös, I. Kovács

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


It is shown in this paper that point defects in an elastic continuum can cause micropolar effects. Using micropolar elasticity transversal microrotation and displacement wave fields are derived which arise from the interaction of point defects with a longitudinal wave. It is shown that the microrotation wave can exist even in a classical elastic continuim.
