Presentation title: Modelling mechanical exciting in foam polymers based Cosserat elasticity
Abstract: The current state of creation and production of new materials, such as auxetics, intelligent materials and others with unusual properties, opens broad prospects for their use in various fields, in particular in medicine and engineering. However, the use of such materials requires careful justification and prediction of their mechanical behaviour under the impact of force, temperature and other influences. To describe the mechanical behaviour of new porous materials, refined models of continuous mechanics, such as Cosserat elasticity, which take into account the influence of shear-rotational deformations, are used.
