representative elementary volume of non-local continuum

Dear mechanicans,

        For non-local continuum, is there a proper approach to determine the size of the REV in experiment? For the classical linear elastic continuum, one can measure the homogeneized stress and strain (or local averaged stress/strain)  and compute a homogeneized elastic constitutive tensor. However, I am not sure how to do it for non-local continuum, since the constitutive response is now sensititve to the gradient term. Any comment/suggestion is appreciated.
