Torsional Behaviour of Structural Rectangular Hollow Sections

This paper presents a basis for determining displacements and stresses arising from the torsion of structural rectangular hollow sections. Particular attention is given to stress concentrations at the re-entrant corners. A relationship is determined between freely formed corner radii and section thickness. Analytical solutions are compared with experimental results on steel sections and prediction from thin walled torsion theory. J. Marshall
