AD 469: P385 Design of Steel Beams in Torsion – Error in Example 3

An SCI member has identified further errors in SCI publication P385 Design of Steel Beams in torsion.

In example 3 section 3.5.1 Total torque, the total torque on the beam being considered is calculated for four different cases. In each case, the expression given sets out the torque per metre but omits multiplying this quantity by the length of the beam to arrive at the total torque. The stated values for the total torque in each case are in fact correct so the remainder of the example uses the appropriate values.
