# Prandtl Stress Function Summary

u x = u x ( y, z ) u y = z ( x ) u z = y ( x )

xz = G

u x + y z u xy = G x z y

(1)

xy y

xz =0 z

by taking

z xz = G y

xy = G

## Prandtl stresss function ( l2 )

## For the warping displacement

u x = y z y u x = z + y z

u x = yz + dz y = yz + dy z

( the q in Eqs.(2) and (3) is the total q flowing in a given cross section, i.e it is q1 q2 flowing in the vertical section) 1. If the torque T is known, then q1 and q2 are first found in terms of the unknown ' from Eqs. (2) and (3). These qm 's are then placed into Eq.(1) which is solved for the unknown ' . Once ' is known in this manner, the qm 's are completely determined. 2. If ' is known, Eqs.(2) and ( 3) can be solved directly for the qm 's and then Eq.(1) can be used to find the torque, T

For a single cell, we can write these more explicitly = area contained within the centerline of the cross section

Torsion of a Thin Closed Section (single cell) The shear stress is not quite uniform across the thickness for thin closed sections yields uniform stress
