Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

In this study the effect of torsional vibration on residual stresses was investigated. Three types of shaft specimen were processed, namely (a) a homogeneous shaft, (b) a shaft welded on a circumferential line and (c) a spot-welded shaft. The first two types of shaft showed some redistribution in the residual stresses under applied torsional loads. On the spot-welded shafts the residual stresses were found to decrease significantly at a very low level of vibration induced stress.
