The Eshelby tensor in nonlocal elasticity and in nonlocal micropolar elasticity

Markus Lazar and Helmut O. K. Kirchner

Vol. 1 (2006), No. 2, 325–337

The Eshelby tensor is formulated for anisotropic linear nonlocal elasticity and nonlocal micropolar elasticity in a nonhomogeneous medium. The divergence of this tensor gives the configurational forces on geometric and physical defects in such a medium. Some examples of the Peach–Koehler force and the Mathison–Papapetrou force between dislocations and/or disclinations are given.
