Unformatted text preview: Mechanics of Aircraft structures C.T. Sun 3.5 The two-cell section in Fig.3.35 is obtained from the single-cell section of Fig.3.36 by adding a vertical web of the same thickness as the skin. Compare the torsional rigidity of the structures of Figs. 3.35 and 3.36 with and , , respectively. cm L L 10 2 1 = = cm L 5 1 = cm L 15 2 = cm t 3 . = Figure 3.35 Two-cell thin-walled section Figure 3.36 Single-cell section Solution: We denote as torsional rigidity. For the same material in comparison, only the torsion constant needs to be considered. GJ J (a) Single-cell thin-walled section The torsion constant is J = t ds A J / 4 2 (3.5.1) where A is the area enclosed by the centerline of the wall section.
