Rotational Stiffness

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

rotational stiffnessRotational 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
