Abstract : The paper is concerned with constitutive equations and related thermodynamical restrictions for an elastic-plastic Cosserat surface. The main developments are carried out in the context of the nonlinear theory. Various special cases, including that with infinitesimal deformation, are discussed. A linear theory of an isotropic, elastic-perfectly plastic Cosserat surface (and plate) is given detailed attention. (Author)
