Theory of “dissolution” and “condensation” of the physical geometric characteristics of an arbitrary cross-section under the action of torsion with bending

Aim of research - to continue the development of methods for determining the stress-strain state of rods during torsion using materials resistance methods. Methods. A new approach for determining tangential torsional stresses for arbitrary cross sectional rods, based on simplified assumptions of material resistance, is proposed. The main feature of this approach is the approximation of rectangular or any complex cross section of reinforced concrete structures by describing a large circle around the cross section and splitting it into small squares with circles inscribed into them. Results. Three theorems have been formulated, the first of which relates the accumulation of tangential stresses (increments) from the edges of a rectangle to the middle of a rectangular section with the formula for determining tangent stresses for round sections. The second theorem allows to establish a connection between the tangential stresses calculated for each of the small squares-circles and the tangent stresses of the large circle through their increments. The third theorem makes it possible to find tangential stresses for each of the small square circles. The proposed approach allows to remove the need to use special tables for the calculation and not only in the elastic stage. It also makes it possible to separate the stress-strain state in the whole set of round cross-sections from the additional field caused by the deplanation of the rectangular cross-section. In addition, the proposed approach makes it possible to take into account the concentration of angular deformations in the incoming angles and other places with changing geometric parameters.
