On the torsion of wings

Publication Date
  • Mathematics


Methods of investigation of pure torsion differ in many ways from the general method of procedure for other types of stresses. First it is very difficult to subject a body to a pure torsion without superposing bending moments; second the exact determination of twisting moment is in most cases very doubtful; third, a body subjected to torsional shearing stresses in general does not deform according to a simple law, but this deformation is usually a function of the geometry of the body.
