TorsionTorsionIntroductionConsider a bar rigidly clamped at one end and twisted at the other end by a torque (twisting moment) T = Fd applied in a plane perpendicular to the axis of the bar, as shown in Fig. 5-1. Such a bar is in torsion. An alternative representation of the torque is the curved arrow shown in the figure.
