Revision that is turning into a learning from scratch session. Some help would be welcome!
- I have a hollow rectangular beam. 0.150m by 0.110m with uniform thickness walls at 0.003m. It is 3m long.
- It has a modulus of rigidity (G) of 27 GigaPascals.
- It has a max permitted shear stress of 200 MegaPascals.
What is the torsional rigidity?
What is max permitted torque (with a safety margin of 2.0)?
What would be the twist angle for the 3m length?
Torsional rigidity = G x second area of inertia. I have G so need 1xx.
Each side at ((0.003x0.110^3)/12) = 3.33 E-07
Top & base each at (using parallel axis theory) ((0.003 x 0.144^3)/12) + (0.003 x 0.144 x 0.062^2) = 2.41 E-06
Add 4 sides = 5.48 E-06
Torsional rigidity = 27 E09 x 5.48 E-06 = 148,000 (units???)
Is this right and what are the units?
As for the other 2 parts – I am lost. Any pointers?
