Sheet 2 Solution Page 1 Imperial College of Science, Technology & Medicine Department of Aeronautics Second Year Structural Mechanics and Dynamics II Tutorial Sheet 2 Solutions Question 1 General shear flow distribution = s 0 y x s 0 x y ds x t I S ds y t I S q But dA ds t = , the element of cross-section of the tube. For an integration over the complete tube cross-section, S , this becomes = S y x S x y dA x I S dA y I S q The definition of the centroidal axes is that 0 dA x dA y S S = = Hence the shear flow must be zero at the end of the cross-section. Question 2 The section is symmetric so that only the x D is required since the shear centre must lie on the line of symmetry.
