Abstract : Constitutive relations are derived for a linear Cosserat continuum possessing hemitropic symmetry. In such a continuum the microstructure has a screw-like property, or handedness, and can support initial couple-stresses of twist. The introduction of free boundaries in such a medium brings about an unbalancing of the internal forces which results in a highly localized skin effect. This skin effect is represented by an outward, or inward, motion of a boundary layer, which is… CONTINUE READING
