Abstract : The problem of the torsion of nonorthotropic rods having cross sections in the form of the general type of elongated aerodynamic profile is examined. Using the method of the smallest parameter, expressions of the functions of stress, rigidity, and tangential stress are obtained and the maximum stresses are determined. The problems of the accuracy of the approximate formulas for torsional rigidity are investigated and the obtained results are illustrated by numerical examples. As the particular case, results are obtained for the torsion of an parabola. (Author)
