Shear Stress in the Shaft

When a shaft is subjected to a torque or twisting, a shearing stress is produced in the shaft. The shear stress varies from zero in the axis to a maximum at the outside surface of the shaft.

The shear stress in a solid circular shaft in a given position can be expressed as:

σ = T r / Ip

where

σ = shear stress (MPa, psi)

T = twisting moment (Nmm, in lb)

r = distance from center to stressed surface in the given position (mm, in)

Ip = "polar moment of inertia" of cross section (mm4, in4)

Note

• the "Polar Moment of Inertia" is a measure of a beam’s ability to resist torsion. The "Polar Moment of Inertia" is defined with respect to an axis...More
