Torsion

6.1

Introduction to Torsion

We have now dealt with normal forces, shear forces and bending moments. Only torsion is left.

Torsion is caused by a torque T . This torque causes the bar to twist by an angle ; the so-called angle

of twist. A visualization of this is given in figure 6.1.

Another important angle is the rotation per meter , defined as

=

.

L

(6.1.1)

In this chapter, we will mainly consider pure torsion. This is when the torque acts on the center of

gravity of the cross-section. At the end we will combine this with a shear force.

6.2

Lets consider a beam with a circular cross-section. What happens when we put a torque T on it? The

torque causes a shear stress in the bar. And where there is shear stress, there is shear strain. This

shear strain is given by

= .

(6.2.1)

The variable is the distance with respect to the center of gravity of the bar. The shear stress can now

be found using

= G = G.

(6.2.2)

However, usually isnt known. But we usually do know the torque T that acts on a bar. The torque

can also be found using

Z

T =

dA = G

2 dA = GIp .

(6.2.3)

A

Combining the above equations, we find an expression for the shear stress. Namely,

=

T

.

Ip

(6.2.4)

This equation is known as the torsion formula. Lets take a close look at this equation. It turns out

that the shear stress increases as we go further from the center of gravity of the cross-section. So

maximum shear stress occurs at the edges of the cross-section.

One final thing we would like to know is the angle of twist. We can find it using

Previously we considered a circular cross-section. Now we will look at closed thin-walled crosssections. A cross-section is closed if it consists of an uninterrupted curve. Lets define Lm as the length

of this curve. Also, Am is the mean enclosed area (the area which the curve encloses). It can now be

shown that the shear flow is given by

T

.

(6.3.1)

q=

2Am

The shear stress at a given point in the cross-section can now be found using

T

,

2tAm

(6.3.2)

To find the angle of twist, we can still use the familiar equation

=

TL

.

GIp

(6.3.3)

There is, however, one slight problem. It is usually rather difficult to find the polar moment of inertia for

these cross-sections in the conventional way. Luckily, there is another equation which we can use. It is

4A2

Ip = H Lm m .

t ds

0

(6.3.4)

H

The sign means that the integration must be performed along the entire boundary. If the thickness t

varies only in steps (which it usually does), then you can also use

Ip = P

4A2m

.

(Lmi /ti )

(6.3.5)

Here ti is the thickness at a certain part of the cross-section and Lmi is the length of that part.

6.4

What do we do if we have both a shear force and a torque acting on a beam? In that case, we can use

the principle of superposition. First find the shear stress distribution for the beam when only the shear

force is present. Then find the shear stress distribution for the beam when only the torque is present.

(Keep in mind the direction of the shear stress!) Then simply add it all up to find the real shear stress

distribution. Sounds easy, doesnt it?
