Superposition of large butt-end and coaxial torsional and axial shear deformations of homogeneous and fiber-reinforced thick-wall cylinders

A mathematical model of superposition of large butt-end and coaxial torsional and axial shear deformations of homogeneous and fiber-reinforced thick-wall cylinders is constructed. The macroscopic stresses of the reinforced material are additively determined by matrix stresses and by tensile or constrained compression stresses in the reinforcing fibers. The model is based on the numerical solution of two boundary-value problems, one of which corresponds to the butt-end torsion and the other to the coaxial torsion and axial shear. The boundary-value problem on joint deformations is solved with the use of the displacement field determined from the solution to the boundary-value problem on butt-end torsion. The results obtained by applying this method to homogeneous and axially-radially reinforced thick-wall cylinders subjected to butt-end torsion with subsequent coaxial torsion and axial shear are presented.
