Problem 3.10-13 A long, thin-walled tapered tube AB of circular cross section (see figure) is subjected to a torque T . The tube has length L and constant wall thickness t . The diameter to the median lines of the cross sections at the ends A and B are d A and d B , respectively. Derive the following formula for the angle of twist of the tube: 2 T G L t d A d 2 A d 2 B d B Hint: If the angle of taper is small, we may obtain approximate results by applying the formulas for a thin-walled prismatic tube to a differential element of the tapered tube and then integrating along the axis of the tube. Solution 3.10-13 Thin-walled tapered tube SECTION 3.10 Thin-Walled Tubes 253 t t L T T A B d A d B L x dx A B d(x) d A d B t thickness d A average diameter at end A d B
