Torsional Deformation and Stress Circular shaft with opposite sides flattened Calculator

h = r - w

K = 2Cr^{4} where C varies with h / r as follows:

For two flat sides 0 ≤ h / r ≤ 0.8

C = .7854 - 0.4053 (h / r) - 3.5810 (h / r)^{2} + 5.2708 (h / r)^{3} - 2.0772 (h / r)^{4}

Angle of Twist under applied Torque Moment

θ = ( T L ) / ( K G )

Shear Stress

For 0 ≤ h / r ≤ 0.6

B = 0.6366 + 2.5303 (h / r) - 11.157 (h / r)^{2} + 49.568 (h / r)^{3} - 85.886 (h / r)^{4} + 69.849 (h / r)^{5}

τ_{max} = T B / r^{3}

Where:

θ = angle of twist (radians)

α = degrees

T = Twisting or torque moment force-length, (in-lbs, N-mm)

L = Length (in, mm)

r = Radius (in, mm)

τ = Unit shear stress force / area (lbs/in^{2}, N/mm^{2})

G = Modulus of rigidity force / area (lbs/in^{2}, N/mm^{2})

K = Polar Moment of Inertia (in^{4}, mm^{4}) for section
