Rotation Due to Twist Calculator

Posted by Dinesh on

Use this simple rock movements calculation tool helps to compute the rotation due to twist 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: ?' = (Mt * K4) / (Er * t2).

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

Rotation Due to Twist - Rock Movements Calculation

Formula:

[?'] = (Mt × K4) / (Er × t2)

where,
  • Mt - Cantilever twisting moment
  • K4 - Poissons ratio constants
  • Er - Elastic modulus of the rock
  • t - Radial thickness of the element
  • ?' - Rotation due to twist
