Title Torsion of an Elastic Rod Whose Cross-Section Is a Parallelogram, Trapezoid, or Triangle, or Has an Arbitrary Shape by the Method of Transformation to a Rectangular Domain
Author(s) A.D. Chernyshov (Voronezh State Technological Academy, pr-t Revolyutsii 19, Voronezh, 394000 Russia,
Abstract A coordinate transformation is used to take the domain of the rod cross-section to a rectangular domain for which the spectra of eigenfunctions and eigenvalues are known. The torsion function is represented as a generalized Fourier series to reduce the problem to solving a closed linear system of algebraic equations for the expansion coefficients. It is shown that these Fourier series converge absolutely, because the expansion coefficients decrease by a cubic law depending on the term number. We prove that the approximate solution in the form of a finite sum of the Fourier series converges to the exact solution. This theorem is generalized to the case of a rod cross-section of arbitrary shape.
