Rotational Stiffness

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Rotational stiffness, abbtrviated as k, is the resist deformation of an object in response to an applied force.

Rotational Stiffness formula

$$\large{ k = \frac{M}{\theta} }$$

Where:

$$\large{ k }$$ = rotational stiffness

$$\large{ \theta }$$  (Greek symbol theta) = angle of the rotation

$$\large{ M }$$ = applied moment
