Twisting torques

Twisting torque is a couple T - T that have the same magnitude but different directions. T and T are vector quantities that can be represented by vectors or curved arrows. Typical applications: transmission shafts

MECHANICS OF MATERIALS Torsional Loads on Circular Shafts

Interested in stresses and strains of circular shafts subjected to twisting couples or torques Turbine exerts torque T on the shaft Shaft transmits the torque to the generator Generator creates an equal and opposite torque T

MECHANICS OF MATERIALS Net Torque Due to Internal Stresses

Net of the internal shearing stresses is an internal torque, equal and opposite to the applied torque,
T = dF = ( dA)

Although the net torque due to the shearing stresses is known, the distribution of the stresses is not. Distribution of shearing stresses is statically indeterminate must consider shaft deformations. Unlike the normal stress due to axial loads, the distribution of shearing stresses due to torsional loads can not be assumed uniform.

Torque applied to shaft produces shearing stresses on the faces perpendicular to the axis. Conditions of equilibrium require the existence of equal stresses on the faces of the two planes containing the axis of the shaft. The existence of the axial shear components is demonstrated by considering a shaft made up of axial slats. The slats slide with respect to each other when equal and opposite torques are applied to the ends of the shaft.

From observation, the angle of twist of the shaft is proportional to the applied torque and to the shaft length.

When subjected to torsion, every cross-section of a circular shaft remains plane and undistorted. Cross-sections for hollow and solid circular shafts remain plain and undistorted because a circular shaft is axisymmetric. Cross-sections of noncircular (nonaxisymmetric) shafts are distorted when subjected to torsion.
Nazarena Mazzaro, AAU 3- 8

Shaft Deformations H: Shaft does not remain undistorted -> observer in A would argue that CD move away from him; observer in B would argue that CD move away from him. -> CD lie in the same circle as CD. The original circle rotates in its own plane.

H: each plane does not rotate as a solid rigid slab -> observer in A would argue to see (a); observer in B would argue to see (b). -> Any diameter of a cross section remains straight (c)

Shaft Deformations

If all sections are to remain plane and undistorted the torques the ends of the shaft must remain plane and undistorted. The torques must be applied to rigid plates. The resulting deformation will be uniform across the entire shaft.

Consider an interior section of the shaft. As a torsional load is applied, an element on the interior cylinder deforms into a rhombus. Since the ends of the element remain planar, the shear strain is equal to angle of twist. It follows that
L = or =

The shearing stress varies linearly with the radial position in the section. Recall that the sum of the moments of elementary forces is equal to the torque on the shaft at the section,

Polar Moment of Inertia Moment of Inertia J: Polar Moment of Inertia of a beams cross-sectional area measures the beams ability to resist torsion. The larger J is the less the beam will twist. 4
J = 2 dA circulararea J =

J refers to how difficult it is to get an object to rotate on an axis. The farther away from the axis of rotation the mass is, the harder it is to make it turn. I: Moment of Inertia of a beams cross-sectional area measures the beams ability to resist bending. The larger I is, the less the beam will bend. 2

Elements with faces parallel and perpendicular to the shaft axis are subjected to shear stresses only. Combination of normal and shearing stresses may be found for other orientations. Consider an element at 45o to the shaft axis,
F = 2( max A0 ) cos 45 = max A0 2 F max A0 2 = = max A A0 2

45o =

a is in pure shear. c is subjected to a tensile stress on two faces and compressive stress on the other two. All stresses for a and c have the same magnitude

MECHANICS OF MATERIALS Torsional Failure Modes

Ductile materials generally fail in shear. Brittle materials are weaker in tension than shear. When subjected to torsion, a ductile specimen breaks along a plane of maximum shear, i.e., a plane perpendicular to the shaft axis. When subjected to torsion, a brittle specimen breaks along planes perpendicular to the direction in which tension is a maximum, i.e., along surfaces at 45o to the shaft axis.
