Matrix representations for 3 D strain-gradient elasticity

  title={Matrix representations for 3 D strain-gradient elasticity},
  author={N. Auffray and H. Le Quang and Q.-C. He},
The theory of first strain gradient elasticity (SGE) is widely used to model size and non-local effects observed in materials and structures. For a material whose microstructure is centrosymmetric, SGE is characterized by a sixth-order elastic tensor in addition to the classical fourth-order elastic tensor. Even though the matrix form of the sixth-order elastic tensor is well-known in the isotropic case, its complete matrix representations seem to remain unavailable in the anisotropic cases.
