A sign convention for shaft torsion
When you look at the shaft When you look at the shaft
from an end, the end closer
to you is twisting positively.
We cut the shaft to investigate the internal
torque in a shaft with a positive twist.
We rotate our view of each portion, so that we
are looking straight onto the cut surface. We
see that a positive internal torque appears see that, a positive internal torque appears
anticlockwise.

Note
1. Make a cut and a new free body diagram for every change in the beam’s
loading.
2 Unfortunately this can make drawing shear force and bending moment 2. Unfortunately, this can make drawing shear force and bending moment
diagrams very tedious. Chapter 9 and 10 will look at shortcut ways to
draw these.
f 3. When determining the shear force and bending moment under a
distributed force, always cut the beam and replace the distributed force
by an equivalent point force.
4. We could use a free body diagram of section of the beam on the right
hand side of the cut point (K) instead of the left hand side, as used
above above.
a. Since every action has an equal and opposite reaction, the positive
directions for v
x
and M
x
on the right hand portion are equal and
opposite to those on the left hand portion.
b. The length of the portion is equal to the overall length minus x.
