Torque Applied Deformation and Stress of a Four Grooved Pinned Shaft Section Calculator

K = 2Cr4

Varies with a / r as follows

For:

0   ≤   a / r ≤   0.5 Angle of Twist under applied Torque Moment

θ = ( T L ) / ( K G )

Shear Stress Maximum

At M: Where B varies with a / r as follows:

for 0.1 ≤ a / r ≤ 0.5 Where:

θ = angle of twist (radians),
T = Twisting or torque moment force-length, (in-lbs, N-mm),
L = Length of Section (in, mm),
h = Length as Indicated (in, mm),
r, a = radius (in, mm),
τ = Unit shear stress force / area (lbs/in2, N/mm2),
G = Modulus of rigidity force / area (lbs/in2, N/mm2),
K = Polar Moment of Inertia (in4, mm4) for section
