Title: Solid Cylinder Torsion for Large Shear Deformation and Failure of Engineering Materials

Abstract

Using a thin-walled tube torsion test to characterize a material’s shear response is a well-known technique; however, the thin walled specimen tends to buckle before reaching large shear deformation and failure. An alternative technique is the surface stress method (Nadai 1950; Wu et al. J Test Eval 20:396–402, 1992), which derives a shear stress-strain curve from the torque-angular displacement relationship of a solid cylindrical bar. The solid bar torsion test uniquely stabilizes the deformation which allows us to control and explore very large shear deformation up to failure. However, this method has rarely been considered in the literature, possibly due to the complexity of the analysis and experimental issues such as twist measurement and specimen uniformity.
