Rotation Due to Shear Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Use this simple rock movements calculation tool helps to compute the rotation due to shear for your hydraulics and waterworks problems. If the ends of the arch elements are vertical, and the bases of the cantilever elements, horizontal, rock rotations and deflections of elements with parallel sides 1 ft apart may be calculated by the formula: ?" = (V * K5) / (Er * t).

Values of K Constants in Eqs. (12.193) to (12.198) for Poissons Ratio = 0.20

Rotation Due to Shear - Rock Movements Calculation

Formula:

?" = (V × K5) / (Er × t)

where,
  • V - Shears
  • Er - Elastic modulus of the rock
  • t - Radial thickness of the element
  • K5 - Poissons ratio constants
  • ?" - Rotation due to shear
