Torsion Formula | Strength of Material ME, CE
Real Life Application
Torsion occurs in the machine elements of shafts like drive shafts, power shafts of automobiles etc. It also occurs in many other applications where rotatory components are present. This topic helps us to understand to keep the stresses induced to be in safe limits.
To understand the concept with clarity it’s important to have basic idea of stress, normal stress, shear stress and analysis of stress. Torsion occurs in the members when a longitudinal moment acts at a cross section. Torsion causes shear stress inside the material. The magnitude of shear stress, angle of twist, torque acting, polar sectional modulus are related with the torsional equation. For the sign convention is concerned counter clockwise
torques are taken as positive and clockwise torques are taken as negative. When the shafts are in series we have to find the individual torques on the individual shafts and the angle of twist at the free end is equal to algebraic sum angle of twists of the shafts. For statically indeterminate numericals the compatibility condition will be that the angle of twist is same in both the parts. It is same in shafts in parallel as well. In the comparison of hollow shafts and solids of same mass and length, the polar sectional modulus of the hollow shaft is greater than solid shaft hence stress induced is lesser and
torque carrying capacity is higher for the hollow shaft . Hence it is preferred over solid shaft.
I took up mechanical coaching at THE GATE ACADEMY as there is no separate coaching for Engineering Sciences in India and Mechanical and Engineering sciences have more or less common topics.I feared that cracking GATE would be very difficult because I started my preparations very late but the counsellors and teachers guided me
To begin with, it gives me immense pleasure to Thank,Thank the institute THE GATE ACADEMY for all their help and support.Its a place to learn, explore, grow and succeed.Well it helps you brush-up your engineering knowledge and learn new things and clears your concept in such great details
THE GATE Academy questions covered a wide variety of topics and were similar to GATE paper standard. The online platform replicated the actual GATE test environment and the detailed and video solutions were sufficient to clear all doubts regarding the question. Thanks to THE GATE Academy team to provide such wonderful tests & platform.
I am Praveen. I got AIR 1 in Instrumentation stream. I want to dedicate this to my parents and to the Gate Academy faculty. Gate Academy coaching helped me tremendously to update myself continuously.I was very impressed with the way they taught each topic in different sessions with separate material for each session.
E Lectures helped me a lot in making a head start in the right direction. It helped whenever I got stuck in any topic. Mock Tests across 50 centers helped me judge my progress both on individual and comparative basis.
In one year’s time, I was able to prepare for GATE exam with the help of THE GATE ACADEMY and faculties. GATE Focused study materials and online mock tests helped me know my strengthen & weakness to prepare accordingly. I wish all the best to all GATE aspirants and suggest them to go through GATE coaching in case the basics are not clear.
GATE Success Story
- Our students get all India rank 1, 1, 1, 1, 4 and 4
- More than 142 students in top 100.
