PROBLEM 3.30
While the exact distribution of the shearing stresses in a
hollow-cylindrical shaft is as shown in Fig. a, an approximate
value can be obtained for τmax by assuming that the stresses
are uniformly distributed over the area A of the cross section,
as shown in Fig. b, and then further assuming that all of the
elementary shearing forces act at a distance from O equal to
the mean radius ½(c1 + c2 ) of the cross section. This
approximate value τ 0 = T /Arm , where T is the applied torque.
Determine the ratio τ max /τ 0 of the true value of the maximum
shearing stress and its approximate value τ 0 for values
of c1 /c2 , respectively equal to 1.00, 0.95, 0.75, 0.50, and 0.

PROBLEM 3.117
After the solid shaft of Prob. 3.116 has been loaded and unloaded as
described in that problem, a torque T1 of sense opposite to the original
torque T is applied to the shaft. Assuming no change in the value of ϕY ,
determine the angle of twist ϕ1 for which yield is initiated in this second
loading and compare it with the angle ϕY for which the shaft started to
PROBLEM 3.116 The solid shaft shown is made of a steel that is
assumed to be elastoplastic with τ Y = 145 MPa and G = 77.2 GPa.
The torque is increased in magnitude until the shaft has been twisted
through 6°; the torque is then removed. Determine (a) the magnitude
and location of the maximum residual shearing stress, (b) the permanent

From the solution to Prob. 3.116,
c = 0.016 m, L = 0.6 m
τ Y = 145 × 106 Pa,
J = 102.944 × 10−9 m 4
The residual stress at ρ = c is
τ res = 33.5 MPa
For loading in the opposite sense, the change in stress to produce reversed yielding is

PROBLEM 3.138
A 4-m-long steel member has a W310 × 60 cross section. Knowing that
G = 77.2 GPa and that the allowable shearing stress is 40 MPa, determine
(a) the largest torque T that can be applied, (b) the corresponding angle of twist.
Refer to Appendix C for the dimensions of the cross section and neglect the
effect of stress concentrations. (See hint of Prob. 3.137.)

PROBLEM 3.138 (Continued)
Substituting for T f from (3) into (4):
2(3.814Tw ) + Tw = T
