Thanks Drew! The AITC manual, 5th edition does give formulas and even an example.
This looks like the way to go!

I found another reference in the AITC "Timber Construction Manual" 5th edition on page 113.

Anyone know of some simple formulas, or reference, for designing an unbraced wood beam that has a torsional moment, (or twisting), at the center of the span as well as bending due to vertical loads on the beam?

Thanks in advance,
