Junction Effects in St Venant's Torsional Stiffness

A method is presented for dividing an open cross-section into components. Computer analyses have been undertaken to determine the effects of the junctions between components, which are significant in many sections. The results of these analyses are presented in the form of charts, which can be used in design offices to find equivalent sections whose inertia can be calculated by simple formulae. No computer analysis is needed by users of the charts. C.J. Burgoyne
