Abstract : Using the linearized theory of an elastic Cosserat surface for an isotropic material, the problem of torsion of a cylindrical Cosserat surface is discussed; the edge curve perpendicular to the generator is not necessarily circular. Torque-twist relationships are obtained for both open and closed surfaces. (Author)
