You need to study 'shear flow' in relation to this. This is a mechanics of materials property not the shear flow regime we see in fluids, although they are related.

It depends on your ratio of height and width of the bar. The equation you would use to calculate the stress is as follows.

σ=(Ta)/J

a = shortest side

The trick is figuring out what J is. There are a couple methods. The first method which isn't always accurate would be to use this equation.

J=C(1/3)(b)(a^3)
b= longer side

C = .91 if , b<10a
C= 1 of b>10a

There are also tables out there that you can use to help you solve for the stress.

For a quick reference you can also look at this webpage:
