Vlasov’s beam paradigm and multivector Grassmann statics

Marcelo Epstein, Reuven Segev

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The theory of thin-walled beams proposed in 1940 by Vlasov is shown to emerge naturally within the framework of multivector statics. This circumstance is used as the basis for possible extensions of the theory to media with complex microstructures.
