Title: Torsion of Thick Walled Cellular Sections
Author(s): J. Marshall
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 103-116
Keywords: loads (forces); reinforced concrete; shear properties; stresses; structural analysis; structural members; torsion
Abstract:An approximate theory is presented for the torsion of cellular sections with no thin wall restrictions. The approximate solutions for three basic regular hollow polygonal shapes are compared with numerical soltions and shown to be in good agreement. Two solutions for an elliptical section also compare well with the exact values. A numberical example with three annular regions illustrates the generality of the technique.
