Let us test the forces required to sustain a torsion of a cylinder. The cylinder is supposed to have length , diameter and to be made of the Neo-Hookean material. The cylinder radius is denoted by .
The cylinder lower base is fully fixed and the cylinder upper base is subjected to the surface load according to the theoretical formula given in [Taber, 2004]
After exerting coresponding surface loading on the upper base of the cylinder, a value of is numerically measured and compared with its assumed value.
