BE12: Cantilever in Torsion

The problem consists of a cantilever beam as shown in the figure. The tip of the cantilever is offsetted in y-direction by my = l/200 = 2.5 cm, creating a geometrical imperfection. The beam is loaded with a transverse force Pz and an axial force Px. The imperfection acts as a lever arm for the loading, causing a torsional moment. The torsional moment at the support with respect to the local and global coordinate system is determined.This is one example of our Verification Manual.
