Given shear modulus N V z 5000 = 0 = y V GPa G 27 = , find the twist angle per unit length. Also determine the shear center. Is the shear flow statically determinate? Figure 5.33 Single-cell closed section Solution: (a) Assume that the thin sheets are ineffective in bending. Let stringer 2 be the reference point for the location of the centroid of this four-stringer section. We have the horizontal and vertical distances of the centroid from stringer 2 as m cm A y A y i i i i i c 2667 . 0 6667 . 26 ) 10 ( 3 ) 80 )( 10 ( = = = = m cm A z A z i i i i i c 1 . 0 10 ) 10 ( 3 ) 10 )( 10 ( ) 20 )( 10 ( = = + = = Now we set up the y and z axes with the origin at the centroid.

Hence only the y position of the shear center needs to be found. We first 5.5.1

Mechanics of Aircraft structures C.T. Sun make a fictitious cut between stringers 1 and 3 and consider the shear flow as the superposition of two shear flow systems as shown in the figure below. + (1) First, calculate the shear flows by assuming a cut in the wall between stringers 1 and 3. Then , and the shear on the cut section is calculated by using 0 ' 31 = q y i z i I Q V q = ' (5.5.1) where is the first moment of stringer area , and is the vertical distance from the centroid of to the y -axis.

Also note that the shear flow passes stringer 1 and, thus, does not produce any moment. 5.5.2
