The aim of this test case is to validate the following functions:

torque

remote force

The simulation results of SimScale were compared to the numerical results presented in [Roark]. The meshes used in (A) and (B) were created with the parametrized-tetrahedralization-tool on the SimScale platform. The meshes used in (C) and (D) were locally created with Salome.

The analytical solution assumes an undeformable surface on the face, wich is subject to the torque bc. This can be modelled in Code_Aster with the option ‘undeformable’ in the remote displacement bc.

CalculiX has no such option and therefore the stresses in the entitites, which are assigned to the torque bc, are unphysical in CalculiX. So the stresses were computed at a point on the edge of face A.

Comparison of the maximum shear stress τmax and the angle of twist θ obtained with SimScale and the results derived from [Roark].
