enclosed by a steel tube of outer diameter d3 37.5 mm and inner
diameter d2 30.0 mm (see figure). Both bar and tube are held
rigidly by a support at end A and joined securely to a rigid plate
at end B. The composite bar, which has a length L 550 mm,
is twisted by a torque T 400 N m acting on the end plate.
(a) Determine the maximum shear stresses 1 and 2 in the bar and
(b) Determine the angle of rotation (in degrees) of the end plate,
assuming that the shear modulus of the steel is G 80 GPa.
(c) Determine the torsional stiffness kT of the composite bar.
(Hint: Use Eqs. 3-44a and b to find the torques in the bar and tube.) Tube
