Torsional Shear Strength of steel tubes

  1. Oct 21, 2011 #1
    Does anyone have any empirically based equation for estimating torsional shear strength of a tube made from a given steel. I've seen "estimates" ranging from 57% UTS to 75% UTS, but nothing empirical. I'm open to anything based on UTS, a given offset strength, or JAEL yield. Thanks!

    Welcome to the board Pete. I've used http://www.roymech.co.uk/Useful_Tables/Matter/shear_tensile.htm" [Broken] relations before.
