Deformation of Bars under Bending or Torsion Model MT 010

Bending and torsion are typical loads to which components are subjected. The resultant stresses and deformations can lead to failure of the component. A number of different factors play a role in this, including the material, the cross-section of the bar, the clamping length and the method of bearing support.

Sci-tech Deformation of Bars under Bending or Torsion Model MT 010 investigates the influence of these factors on the deformation of a bar under bending load or torque.
