Abstract : In the theory of simple force and stress dipoles (within the framework of the simple multipolar theory of Green and Rivlin) the anti-symmetric part of dipolar stresses make no contribution to the equations of motion or to the energy equation and are not determined by a free energy function. Here, the significance of these stresses (in a complete theory) is further discussed with reference to a simple example of torsion of a circular cylinder of an elastic material. (Author)
