In this experimental study, maximum torsion shear stresses occurring on the hallow aluminum shaft under various small torsion loads were measured with strain gauge, data acquisition cards and computer. Special software was developed to measure maximum strain and stress on the thin aluminum hollow shaft. Stress values occurring on the aluminum hallow shaft under various small loads were measured with strain gauge and those strain values were transmitted to computer directly with data acquisition cards. Using the strain, the load and other constant values of the material (Torsion stress, outside and inside diameters of shaft, length of shaft, shear stress modulus, applied torque loads, twist angle of shaft etc) the stress values occurring on the hallow shaft are calculated by computer program and the stress-strain graph is drawn on the computer screen automatically [Refer to table1 Fig. 2,3,4,5 and 6]. In this experimental study, the theoretical knowledge given in the books and experiment results obtained under laboratory conditions were compared with each other. The obtained results were almost same. Similar experimental application could be used for real applications in car industry and mobile machines [1]. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.
