Torsion of an Isotropic Cosserat Elastic Cylinder

Application ID: 103441

In this example, it is demonstrated how to extend the built-in linear elastic material model to a Cosserat material through the addition of microrotation degrees of freedom. A cylindrical bar under pure torsion is analyzed and the effect of the Cosserat length scale parameter on the response is studied.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
