Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm a student of mechanical engineer and currently doing a project on "fabricating a torsion test equipment".

I'm just wondering about my torque calculations.

My design is quite simple, consists of:

- angle iron (frame)

- torque angle gauge (to measure angle of twist)

- 2x 1/2" drill chucks (one fixed at the other end and one is rotating with a torque wrench as an applying force)

Now, the question is, how do i calculate the "maximum torque" or force (at the fixed one) it can holds? My specimen is 10mm diameter with 100mm of length.

Regards,

Ren
