Abstract: The main purpose of this paper is to present a parametric study of homogenised coefficients and equivalent torsion rigidity of a cylindrical bar with double periodicity. Assuming an infinitely long cylinder, it is sufficient to analyse the cross section Σ, which exhibits a periodical distribution of porous zones ΣP. At a finer scale, the latter also presents a periodicity. The theoretical results of the homogenisation procedure are stated more explicitly than in Taghite et al. The parametric analysis is preceded by a brief presentation of the adopted numerical procedure.

Keywords: homogenisation; multiperiodicity; contrast of scales; homogenised coefficients; equivalent torsion rigidity; cylindrical bars; torsion loads.
