Angle of Twist Calculator

Enter the torque applied, length of shaft, polar moment of inertia, and shear modulus into the calculator to determine the angle of twist.

Angle of Twist Formula

The following formula can be used to calculate the angle of twist of a solid shaft.

a = ( T * L )/( J * G)

  • Where a is the angle of twist (radians)
  • T is the torque applied (N*m)
  • L is the length (m)
  • J is the polar moment of inertia
  • G is the shear modulus (N/m^2)

FAQ

What is angle of twist?

An angle of twist the the measure of the amount of twist an object, typically a rod, undergoes when a torque is applied in to the ends of the rod.

What is the polar moment of inertia?

The polar moment of a inertia is the measure of the objects resistance to twisting.
