deformation of the twisted bar, enforce the governing equations of the theory of elasticity and

from them derive simplified equations on a reduced set of variables. Due to the uniqueness

of solutions, we can be sure that the assumptions made and the solutions found are correct

for the torsion problem.

The assumptions about the deformation resulting from the applied torque M3 = T are:

Each x3 = constant plane section rotates as a rigid body about the central axis,

although it is allowed to warp in the x3 direction

The rotation angle of each section is a linear function of x3 , i.e. (x3 ) = x3 , where

is the constant rate of twist or angle of twist per unit length.

Figure 6.2: Rigid in-plane rotation displacements for the torsion problem

Concept Question 6.1.1. Based on these assumptions and the schematic of the figure,

derive the displacements corresponding to the rotation of the cross section at x3

Solution: The displacements corresponding to the rotation of the cross section at x3

is:

u1 = r(x3 ) sin ; u2 = r(x3 ) cos

Observing that x1 = r cos , x2 = sin and replacing the angle of twist at x3 , (x3 ) = x3 :

u1 = x3 x2 , u2 = x3 x1

The out-of-plane warping displacement is assumed to be independent of x3 . Our displacement assumption is thus reflected in the following expressions: function u3 is assumed

If we follow the stress formulation, at this point we would apply the strain compatibility

relations, but it is more direct to derive a special compatibility relation for the torsion

problem. To this end, differentiate equation (6.4) with respect to x1

23,1 = G( + u3,21 )

, equation (6.5) with respect to x2

31,2 = G( + u3,12 )

and subtract to obtain:

31,2 32,1 = 2G

(6.7)

As we have done for plane stress problems, we will seek a scalar function that automatically satisfies the equilibrium equations. Lets see what the stress equilibrium equations look

like for the torsion problem:

Concept Question 6.2.3. Specialize the general equations of stress equilibrium: ij,j = 0

(no body forces) to the torsion problem (no need to express them in terms of the strains or

displacement assumptions as we will use a stress function)

Solution: The only non-trivial equation is the third:

31,1 + 32,2 = 0

(6.8)

Now we can choose a stress function that will automatically satisfy equation (6.8):

31 = ,2 , 32 = ,1

(6.9)

It can be readily verified that this choice does indeed satisfy the equilibrium equations.

To obtain the final governing equation for the stress function, we need to combine equations (6.9) with the compatibility equation (6.7)

129

Concept Question 6.2.4. Do it!

Solution:

From where we get

,11 + ,22 = 2G

(6.10)

This is the final governing equation we will use in the description of torsion based on

the stress formulation. The type of equation (Laplacian equal to constant) is known as the

Poisson equation.

It requires the provision of adequate boundary conditions. As we know, stress formulations are useful when we can provide traction boundary conditions

Concept Question 6.2.5. Specialize the general traction boundary conditions ij nj = ti

to the torsion problem (Hint consider the loading on the (lateral) cylindrical surface of the

bar and focus on a specific cross-section)

Solution: The main observation is that the

bar is unloaded on the sides, so ti = 0. On the boundary we then have:

21 n1

n3 = 0, 0 = 0

12 n2 + 13

+

n3 = 0, 0 = 0

22 n2 + 23

n3 = 0

31 n1 + 32 n2 +

33

Replacing the stresses as a function of and observing that the tangent vector on the

boundary is s = s1 , s2 = n2 , n1 , we obtain:

,2 s2 + (,1 )(s1 ) = 0, ,1 s1 + ,2 s2 = 0

s = 0, or

=0

s

(6.11)

that is, the gradient of the stress function is orthogonal to the tangent or parallel to the

normal at the boundary of the cross section, which in turn implies that is constant on the

boundary of the cross section. The value of the constant is really immaterial, as adding a

constant to will not affect the stresses. For convenience, we will assume this value to be

zero. (We will see that in the case of multiply-connected sections this has to be relaxed).

To summarize, the torsion problem for simply-connected cross sections is reduced to the

following boundary value problem:

,11 + ,22 = 2G inside the area of the cross section

(6.12)

= 0 on the boundary

(6.13)

It remains to relate the function to the external torque M3 = T applied and to verify

that all other stress resultants are zero at the end of the bar.

130

MODULE 6. TORSION

At the bar end (x3 = 0, L), the internal stresses need to balance the external forces.

Ignoring the details of how the external torque is applied and invoking St. Venants principle,

we can state, see figure:

Solution approach

1. Compute the stress function by solving Poisson equation and associated boundary

condition (6.12)

2. Obtain torque - rate of twist relation T = T () from equation (6.14)

3. Compute stresses 23 , 31 from equations (6.9), strains 23 , 31 follow directly from the

constitutive law

4. Compute warping function u3 (x1 , x2 ) by integrating equations (6.5) and (6.4)

A powerful method of approaching the solution of the Poisson equation for the torsion problem is based on the observation that vanishes at the boundary of the cross section. Therefore, if we have an implicit description of the boundary of our cross section f (x1 , x2 ) = 0,

we could use the inverse method where we assume a functional dependence of (x1 , x2 ) of

the form (x1 , x2 ) = Kf (x1 , x2 ), where K is a constant to be determined. Although this

does not provide a general solution to the Poisson equation, it is useful in several problems

of interest. Once again as we have done when using the inverse method, if our assumed

functional form satisfies the governing equations and the boundary conditions, uniqueness

guarantees that we have found the one and only solution to our problem of interest.

Concept Question 6.3.1. Torsion of an elliptical bar

T at that point. Assume a yield criterion based on the maximum shear stress (also

known as Tresca yield criterion), i.e. the material yields plastically when max = 0 .

Membrane analogy

For a number of cross sections it is not easy to find analytical solutions to the torsion problem

as presented in the previous section. Prandtl (1903) introduced an analogy that has proven

very useful in the analysis of torsion problems. Consider a thin membrane subject to a

uniform pressure load pa shown in Figure 6.6.

N is the membrane force per unit length which is uniform in all the membrane and in

all directions. It can be shown that the normal deflection of the membrane u3 (x1 , x2 ) is

governed by the equation:

p

u3,11 + u3,22 =

(6.16)

N

The boundary condition is simply u3 (x1 , x2 ) = 0.

We observe that there is a mathematical parallel or analogy between the membrane and

torsion problems:

The analogy gives a good physical picture for which is useful as it is easy to visualize

deflections of membranes of odd shapes. It has even been used as an experimental technique

involving measurements of soap films (see Timoshenkos book). Looking at contours of u3 is

particularly useful.

By observing the table, we can see that:

the shear stresses are proportional to the slope of the membrane. This can be gleaned

from the density of contour lines: the closer, the higher the slope and the higher the

stress, the stress resultant is oriented parallel to the contour line.

if we measure the volume encompassed by the deformed shape of the membrane, we

can obtain the torque applied.

In particular, we can draw insights into the overall torsion behavior of general cross

sections.

Figure 6.6: Examples of membranes subject to uniform pressure and sketch of deflection

contour lines

137

analytical solution can be obtained by using Fourier series (outside scope of this class).

However, the membrane analogy gives us important insights about the stress field. Sketch

contours of and make comments about the characteristics of the stress field.

Solution:

The two main conclusions are that: 1) the stresses are larger in the shorter side as the

contours are more bunched up on this side, 2) the stresses near the corners must be really

low, as the contours are more spaced out toward the boundary.

Concept Question 6.4.2. Consider the cases of cross section with corners such as those

shown in Figure 6.7. What can we learn from the membrane analogy about the stress

distribution due to torsion near the corner in the case of

Solution: In this case, we can see

1. convex corner

that the contours space out near the corner, which means that the gradient of and

thus the stresses are lower. This suggests that we can can save some weight in

our structure by rounding up the corner and eliminating some material.

2. concave corner Solution: In this case, we observe that the contours bunch up

toward the corner, which means that the gradient of and thus the stresses are larger

(stress concentration). This suggests that we can reduce stress concentrations

by rounding up the corner and adding some material (fillet).

question, we will make use of the membrane analogy to estimate the stress distribution in a

narrow rectangular cross section as shown in Figure 6.8.

. Comment on the dominant spatial dependence of and from there, the expected

torsion response.

Solution:

Comments: For a narrow rectangle, the contour lines will be mostly parallel to x2

and will depend only on x1 except near the ends. As a result, the stresses 23 will

dominate the torsion response.

2. Based on your conclusions, obtain (x1 ) by simplifying and then integrating the governing equation.

Solution: As long as we are not close to the ends of the narrow

strip, we can assume u3,22 0 and the membrane governing equation (6.16) becomes:

u3,11 = u3 (x1 ) = Np

Integrating this expression twice:

4. The torsional stiffness of the bar is defined as GJ, where G the shear modulus is the

material and J is the geometric contribution to the structural stiffness. Find J for this

case and comment on the structural efficiency of this cross section:

Solution:

It follows immediately that J = ba3 . This scales with a3 which is the small dimension,

i.e. the structural efficiency is terrible.

The stress diagram suggests that the dominant internal stresses are unable to provide

a large internal torque due to the small moment arm available which scales with a.

The discussion for a narrow rectangular cross section is also applicable to other narrow

(open) shapes, see examples in Figure 6.10,

Figure 6.10: Other narrow open cross sections for which the solution for the rectangular case

is useful

Concept Question 6.4.4. Justify this statement and comment on the general torsional

structural efficiency of narrow open shapes.

Solution: As long as we are far from

the ends of the narrow profile and from regions of high localized curvature such as corners,

the contours of will be parallel to the edges of the narrow shape which will lead to a linear

shear stress profile across the thickness, see Figure 6.11, the low moment arm and, thus, a

low structural efficiency.

141

Figure 6.11: Stress function contours and stress diagram for general narrow open sections

From the membrane analogy, one can observe that the volume of the deformed membrane

for general narrow open cross-sections comprising several segments such as in an channel or

I-beam, can be approximated by the sum of the individual volumes. The additive character

of the integral then tells us that the torque-rate-of-twist relation can be obtained by adding

the torsional stiffness of the individual components. Specifically,

In the case of the channel beam, Figure 6.12, Ji = i3 i . We observe that as we extend the

lengths of each component, the torsional stiffness only grows linearly with the total length.

We will see that the situation is very different for the case of closed sections.

As for the stresses, they maximum stress will differ in each component of the thin section

as well as on the external boundary. However, we cannot assume that the constant will be

the same. In fact, each boundary i will be allowed to have a different constant i . We

can still assign one constant arbitrarily which we will keep setting as zero for the external

surface, i.e. 0 = 0 on 0 .

With the exception of a few simple cases, it is generally difficult to obtain analytical

solutions to torsion problems with holes. We will look at a few specific cases.

These results are also very important in the context of box-beams, as we shall see later

in the class.

Concept Question 6.5.1. Consider the case of a Hollow elliptical section It is important

that the interior boundary be an ellipse scaled from the outer boundary, that is the ellipse

semi-radii are ka, kb, where k < 1.

1. write the implicit equation of the interior boundary

fhole (x1 , x2 ) =

x22

x21

1=0

(ka)2 (kb)2

Solution:

145

x2

x1

2. Show that this implies that the interior boundary coincides with a contour line of the

stress function we developed for the solid elliptical section and find the value of 1 = C

for which the contour line matches the interior boundary for a given k.

Solution:

The stress function developed for the solid elliptical section was, see equation (6.15):

T x21 x22

solid =

+ 2 1

A a2

b

The contours of solid are given by:

T x21 x22

+ 2 1 =C

A a2

b

x1 x2

T

The implicit function for the elliptical hole can be rewritten as:

x21 x22

+ 2 = k2

a2

b

Comparing the last two expressions we obtain:

CA

T

+ 1 = k 2 C = (k 2 1)

T

A

So the value constant value of the stress function on the interior boundary is:

T

1 = (k 2 1)

A

3. Evaluate the value of on the interior boundary when k = 0.5 relative to the value of

at the center of the bar in the solid section

Solution: The value of at the

center of the bar in the solid section is:

T 02 02

T

+ 2 1 =

solid (0, 0) =

MODULE 6. TORSION

According to the previous expression, the value of of on the interior boundary when

k = 0.5 is:

T

T

C = (0.52 1) = 0.75

A

A

So for k = 0.5, the constant value of on the interior boundary is 3/4 of the value at

the center for the solid section.

4. Comment on the possibility of using the same function in both cases (solid and hollow): does it satisfy the governing equation ,ii = 2G and the boundary conditions?

What about the warping displacement compatibility condition (6.17)?

Solution:

The stress function for the solid section will satisfy the governing equation at all points

of the hollow section by virtue of the fact that it did so at those same points for the

solid section.

The external boundary condition hasnt been modified, = 0 there in the hollow case

as well.

T

(k 2 1).

The stress function is constant on the inner boundary and its value is 1 = A

This satisfies the requirement that the interior boundary surface is traction free and

implies that the shear stress resultant is tangent to the interior boundary. It also

implies that any contour line in a solid section is traction free under torsion, i.e. it is

as if the individual strips of material inbetween contour lines acted independently in

their contribution to torsion.

It can be readily verified that the warping displacement compatibility condition (6.17)

is satisfied as well.

In conclusion, the function for the solid section can be used for the hollow section as

well without any modification.

5. Is there anything at all that changes, e.g. stiffness, stresses and rate of twist for a given

torque, etc.?

Solution: We expect the stiffness to be

smaller for the hollow section, which implies that for a given torque the rate of twist

will be larger. To see this, compute the torque-rate-of-twist relation for this case:

ZZ

ZZ

T =2

T =G

(ka)3 (kb)3

a3 b3

a2 + b 2

(ka)2 + (kb)2

a3 b3

= G(1 k 4 ) 2

a + b2

Also, notice that since is the same as in the solid section, for a given torque the

stresses have to be the same (where there is material of course).

The final an overarching conclusion is that the solution for the hollow section can be

obtained by simply removing the inner elliptical core from the solid section.

147

6. Compute the torsional efficiency = AJ of the hollow elliptical cross section relative

to the solid section as a function of k. How would you optimize the cross section to

maximize stiffness relative to weight?

Solution:

3 3

(1 k 4 ) aa2 +bb 2

1 k 4 a2 b 2

=

=

(1 k 2 )ab

1 k 2 a2 + b 2

For the solid case: =

a2 b 2

.

a2 +b2

relative

1 k4

=

1 k2

The denominator (representative of the relative area) decreases much faster than the

numerator (representative of the relative stiffness). This means that the efficiency

increases as we take out more and more material from the core. The main conclusion

is that the most efficient cross sections for torsion are thin hollow cross sections.

6.6

Consider the limit case of a very thin hollow (closed) section, Figure 6.17

Since the inner and outer boundaries are nearly parallel, the resultant shear stress will

be nearly parallel to the median line throughout.

Also, the gradient of across the thickness and therefore the resultant stress will be

0

almost constant and equal to n

1t(s)

, where t(s) is the thickness.

This is in stark contrast to the thin open sections where was zero on both boundaries

across the thickness (it is in fact the same boundary) and adopted a parabolic profile

148

MODULE 6. TORSION

inbetween which resulted in a linear shear stress distribution which changed signs across the

thickness.

We can also make the following approximation in the computation of the warping displacement compatibility condition (6.17):

I

ds 2GA

The resisting torque provided by this cross section can then be computed as, Figure 6.18

dT = h(s) (s)t(s)ds, T =

dT =

(s)t(s)h(s)ds

We can show that the product (s)t(s) is a constant along the boundary for any s. Based

on Figure 6.6 and imposing equilibrium:

Then,

T = t

h(s)ds

T = 2 tA()

and we obtain:

Concept Question 6.6.1. Compare the result of this approximation with the exact theory

for a hollow circular bar of radius R and thickness t

Solution:

For a thin-hollow (thin) circular bar of radius R and thickness t, we have that
