cd t

= area enclosed within the centre line of the thin-wall section


By reference to Figure 3.1 it may be seen that the value of cot© may be taken NAD anywhere between the limits of 0.67 to 1.5. Table 3

To minimize link reinforcement take cot© = 1.5.

Note that this value must be consistent with the value taken for normal shear.

Eqn 4.43

Re-arranging gives

Therefore sw S

The spacing of torsion links should not exceed —
