The torsional deflection analysis of uniform hollow beams having a uniform cutout and subjected to a quasi-statically moving point torque is presented. An inherent deflection discontinuity is examined and a method to eliminate this incompatability problem is given. As a numerical example, a rectangular hollow beam used in an automated guideway transit application is studied.
