Abstract

Most students will already be familiar with the simple theory of torsion of circular shafts, which is based on the simplifying assumption that plane cross-sections of the shaft remain plane and parallel to one another during straining. In turn, this means that radial straight lines drawn on the cross-section remain straight during straining, and that the shear strain is proportional to radius.
