Saint-Venant's theorem

In solid mechanics, it is common to analyze the properties of beams with constant cross section. Saint-Venant's theorem states that the simply connected cross section with maximal torsional rigidity is a circle. [1]

It is named after the French mathematician Adhémar Jean Claude Barré de Saint-Venant.
