Member in torsion (concentrated torque) - Verification example


Our verification examples are created to be able to compare hand calculation results with Consteel anaysis results with using either 7DOF beam or shell finite elements including Superbeam function. This example is a member in torsion loaded with concentrated torque.


Calculation by hand

Computation by Consteel

Version nr: Consteel 15 build 1488

  • 7DOF beam element

Bimoment of the member due to concentrated twist moment:

Warping normal stress in the middle cross-section:

  • Shell FE model

Maximum deformation of the middle cross-section:
