# SS-V: 1010 Twisted Cantilever Beam

Test No. VS02 Find tip deflections of a twisted cantilever beam when subjected to shear loads.

## Definition

- in-plane shear
- out of plane shear

Loads are uniformly distributed along the face.

The units are IPS.

**Properties****Value**- Modulus of Elasticity
- 29e+6 psi
- Poisson's Ratio
- 0.22
