Abstract: The large deformation torsion problem of an elastic circular cylinder, composed of homogeneous isotropic compressible nonlinearly elastic material and subjected to twisting moments at its ends, is described. The problem is formulated as a two-point boundary-value problem for a second-order nonlinear ordinary differential equation in the radial deformation field. The class of materials for which pure torsion (i.e., a deformation with zero radial displacement) is possible is described. Specific material models are used to illustrate the results.
