Tag: Torsion Torsion

Forces that cause a member to twist about a longitudinal axis are called torsional loads. Simple torsion is produced only by a couple, or moment, in a plane perpendicular to the axis. If a couple lies in a nonperpendicular plane, it can be resolved into a torsional moment, in a plane perpendicular to the axis, and bending moments, in planes through the axis. Shear

Forces or moments that tend to twist a member are called torisonal loads. In shafts, the stresses and corresponding strains induced by these loads depend on both the shape and size of the cross section. Suppose that a circular shaft is fixed at one end and a twisting couple, or torque, is applied at the other end (Fig. 3.21a). When
