ABSTRACT
In this paper, we obtain the general solution of equations of motion of axisymmetric problem of micro-isotropic,
micro-elastic solid in static case. The equations of motion of axisymmetric problem are converted into vector
matrix differential equations using the Hankel transform. Applying the technique of solving the eigen value
problem, the general solution of the said problem is obtained. The results of the corresponding problem in linear
micropolar elasticity are obtained as a particular case of this paper.
KEYWORDS: Micro-isotropic, micro-elastic solid, Eigen value, Hankel transform.

I. INTRODUCTION
The classical theory of elasticity describes well the behavior of construction materials provided the stresses
do not exceed the elastic limit and no stress concentration occurs. The discrepancy between the results of the
classical theory of elasticity and the experiments [1] appears in all the cases when the microstructure of the body
is significant. The materials having microstructure are metals, polymers, rocks and concrete. The influence of
microstructure is particularly evident in the case of elastic vibrations of high frequency and/or small wave
length. To remove the short comings of the classical theory of elasticity, Eringen [2] introduced the theory of
micromorphic materials which includes the micromotion. This theory was simplified by Koh [3] extending the
concept of coincidence of principal directions of stresses and strain of classical elasticity and named it as the
theory of micro-isotropic, micro-elastic materials. Nowacki [4] has shown that the equations of motion of
axisymmetric problem of micropolar solid can be decomposed into two mutually independent sets of three
equations. Das et al. [5, 6] have obtained general solution of equations of motion in thermoelasticity and
magnetothermo-elasticity using eigen value approach to solve vector matrix differential equation.
In the present paper, we apply the technique of solving an eigen value problem to obtain the general
solution of the axisymmetric problem of micro-isotropic, micro-elastic solid. The results of the corresponding
problem in micropolar theory [7] are obtained as a particular case of it.

II. BASIC EQUATIONS
The equations of motion and the constitute equations of micro-isotropic, micro-elastic solid under the
absence of body forces and body couples are given by Parameshwaran and Koh [8]
