### Why torsional warping does not occur for shafts with circular symmetry?

When we twist a shaft/beam/rod, shearing stresses are produced. The angle by which the end of the shaft rotates can be found as: $$\theta ={\frac {TL}{GJ}}$$ where $T$ is torque, $L$ ...

### Why is tensorial shear strain half of engineering shear strain?

Small deformation shear strain $\gamma$ in engineering can be expressed as $$\gamma_{xy}=\alpha +\beta ={\frac {\partial u_{y}}{\partial x}}+{\frac {\partial u_{x}}{\partial y}}$$ where $u$ ...

### Calculate Rolling Resistance Experimentally

I am trying to calculate the exact rolling resistance ($F_{rr}$) of my car. The approach I am going with is a coastdown test at a low speed so no drag slows down the car. From there I am going to ...

### Displacement of Gaussian point after structure simulation

When we did the simulation, we would get deformation and got each nodes displacement. In physics, it shows the trajectory of a system of particles of the objects. Is it the same as the displacement ...

### What degree of open span/narrow support can rigid PIR thermal insulating foam sustain under the short term load of setting concrete?

I've found data related to the deformation and shear performance of typical PIR (polyisocyanurate) foams such as Celotex/Kingspan, but I'm not sure how to use these figures in my own situation. I am ...

### Deflection of a stack of disks under applied force/pressure

I'm trying to calculate the deflection of a stack of metallic disks, when subjected to a force. In the case of the figure below, representing a valve for a shock absorber, the force is due to a ...

### Springback after a plastic deformation

Before the yield point, the deformation is elastic, and then it is plastic. But what happens to the elastic 'part' of strain after the load is removed? Is it retracted fully or partly, and how does ...

### deformation / bending problem with anodized aluminium panels

I recently had a machine shop machine some aluminium panels (3mm thickness) which I then sent to an anodizing shop where the panels were bead blasted and anodized. When they came back they were ...

### How to calculate a global strain from a field disitribution

For an arbitrary articulated structure subject to non-affine (non homogeneous) deformations, the components of the strain tensor are defined locally. Is there a way to calculate a numerical strain ...

### Increasing the stiffnes of a structure by adding stiffener, but at the same time reducing main surface thickness

Let's say I'm designing a table surface which has to be stiff, rigid, but at the same time, not too heavy. It is rectangular in shape and ratio of length:width is quite large. It is only supported on ...

### Computing strain in beams

I am studying this problem: The rigid bar ABC shown in Fig. P-212 is hinged at A and supported by a steel rod at B. Determine the largest load P that can be applied at C if the stress in the ...

### Is there an standard description for deformation at each point on a body?

I'm trying to come up with a way to describe deformation on a body at each point on that body. My problem can be expressed and solved in two dimensions. Given two triangles, one being the initial ...

### Possibility of buckling in non-slender member?

The above diagram is misleading. In reality, both the length and thickness are equal to 8mm. As this is from a past paper (one notorious for awkward questions), I'm not sure if it's a typo (an 8m ...
