AZFIREBALL said:The 3 inch section is resisting both loads.
The 2 inch section is resisting the outer load only.
The torsional deflection formula is a mathematical equation used to calculate the amount of deflection or bending that occurs in a material when it is subjected to torsional or twisting forces.
The torsional deflection formula is derived from the basic principles of mechanics, specifically the relationship between torque, moment of inertia, and angular displacement.
The variables in the torsional deflection formula include the applied torque, the length of the material, the material's shear modulus, and the material's polar moment of inertia.
No, the torsional deflection formula is specifically designed for elastic materials, meaning those that can return to their original shape after being subjected to external forces. It is not applicable for materials that exhibit plastic deformation.
The torsional deflection formula is commonly used in engineering and construction to design and analyze structures that are subjected to torsional forces, such as bridges, towers, and wind turbines.
