Accuracy of Determination of the Elastic Torsional Properties of Non-Circular Sections Using Relaxation Methods and the Membrane Analogy

The paper describes an investigation into the accuracy of determination of the torsional properties of a noncircular section by the membrane analogy and by relaxation methods. A circular section with a circular groove was investigated, the section being considered most suitable because an analytical solution is available and because it has a region of high stress comparable to the re-entrant comers of structural sections in which the authors are interested.
