Member in torsion (torsion by transverse concentrated load on mono-symmetric I section) - Verification example


Our verification examples are created to be able to compare hand calculation results with Consteel anaysis results with using either 7DOF beam or shell finite elements. This example is a member of mono-symmetric I- section loaded with transverse concentrated load.


Calculation by hand

Computation by Consteel
