J J is the polar moment of inertia. J is the polar moment of inertia. J = ∫ ρ 2 dA Derivation of the Torsion Formula
Derivation of the Torsion Formula
► For a circular rod, π4
► For a hollow shaft,
► The shear strain γ can be can be related to T by, ► π44
(a − b )
2 γ= Tρ
GJ γ max = Ta
GJ Eqns (4.8) and (4.9) can be applied to nonuniform circular bars and bars subjected to varying torques along the length. Angular Twist of a Circular Bar
Angular Twist of a Circular Bar
Recall from the geometry,
γ max =
► Substitution of τ = G γ in the above equation together with ► γ max =
results in, ► φ= Ta
GJ The angle of twist is proportional to the applied torque T and provides the basis for determining the modulus of rigidity (shear modulus) of a given material. Composite Shafts
