In this paper, in order to examine the torsional behaviour of twisted yarn closely, the torsional rigidity would be derived in terms of physical and mechanical characteristics of its constituent fibers and yarn structural parameters by energy-method. And the propriety of the theory will be discussed by comparing with experimental results. The torsional rigidity of yarn in both experimental and theoretical results decreases with surface helix angle increases. But the experimental values are more higher than those of the theoretical ones.
