The aim of the paper is quantify the material length scale parameter of the simplified form of the strain gradient elasticity theory (SGET) using first principles density-functional theory (DFT). The single material length scale parameter l is extracted from phonon-dispersions generated by DFT calculations and, for comparison, by adjusting the analytical SGET solution for the displacement field near the screw dislocation with the DFT calculations of this field. The obtained results are further used in the SGET modeling of cracked nanopanel formed by the single tungsten crystal where due to size effects and nonlocal material point interactions the classical fracture mechanics breaks down.
