Size-effects of metamaterial beams subjected to pure bending: on boundary conditions and parameter identification in the relaxed micromorphic model

We devote this paper to model the size-effects of metamaterial beams under bending with the aid of the relaxed micromorphic continuum. We analyze first the size-dependent bending stiffness of

Lagrange and $H(\operatorname{curl},{\cal B})$ based Finite Element formulations for the relaxed micromorphic model

A benchmark strain gradient elasticity solution in two-dimensions for verifying computational approaches by means of the finite element method

In elasticity, microstructure-related deviations may be modeled by strain gradient elasticity. For so-called metamaterials, different implementations are possible for solving strain gradient
