Problem 3.3-4 An aluminum bar of solid circular cross section is twisted by torques T acting at the ends (see figure). The dimensions and shear modulus of elasticity are as follows: L 5 1.2 m, d 5 30 mm, and G 5 28 GPa. (a) Determine the torsional stiffness of the bar. (b) If the angle of twist of the bar is 4°, what is the maximum shear stress? What is the maximum shear strain (in radians)?
