Torsional Shaft Function: transmit torques from one plane to the other. Design of torsional shafts: stress and deformation T T T Deformation of a Torsional Shaft with Circular Cross Section Questions: After applied a torque T at section C, 1. What happens to the longitudinal member ab? 2. Does the cross section C change its shape? 3. Is there any out-of-plane deformation at C? 4. What about sections A and B, where B is halfway away from A and C? 5. What happens to the angle between ab and cd? Deformation of a Torsional Shaft with Circular Cross Section Answers: Shear Strain - on the Surface of the Shaft bb ' r , is the angle of twist, r is the radius of the cross section ab L ee ' 2 r r ae L 2 L ee ' d d r , is the rate of change of the angle of twist ae dx dx d r dx Shear Strain - inside the Shaft dd ' cd L is the radial distance of element cd from the center. Shear strain is linearly proportional to the radial distance. It reaches its maximum value at the surface of the shaft. Torsional Shaft - Shear Stress Shear strain: Shear Stress: G G 0 0 s r = s Gr r Elastic torsion formula: s s J 2ds 2 2 d 2 3d T s ds 2 ds J s s s s r r s r J is the polar second moments of inertial e.g. r r1 r2 Torsional Shaft - Torque Diagram Example 1: Draw the torque diagram for the following shaft.

Load and deformation relations: Torque - displacement equation Torsional Shaft - Statically Indeterminate Problems Example 3: A shaft shown below is fixed between two walls.

Torsional Shaft - Statically Indeterminate Problems Example 4: A hollow circular aluminum alloy (G = 4000 ksi) cylinder has a steel (G = 12,000 ksi) core as shown in the figure. The steel and aluminum parts are securely connected at the ends. (1) If T = 80 kip in, what are the torques applied at aluminum and steel respectively? (2) If the allowable stresses in the steel and aluminum must be limited to 12 ksi and 10ksi, determine the maximum torque that can be applied to the right end of the composite shaft. (3) Find the rotation of the right end of the composite shaft when the torque of (2) is applied. Torsional Shaft - Statically Indeterminate Problems Example 5: A circular bar AB with ends fixed against rotation has a hole extending for half of its length (see figure). The outer diameter of the bar is d2 = 100 mm and the diameter of the hole is d1 = 80 mm. The total length of the bar is L = 1250 mm. At what distance x from the left-hand end of the bar should a torque T0 be applied so that the reactive torques at the supports will be equal?
