How is it that on loading a spring, shearing stress is produced?

Here is a sketch of part of a spring which is subjected to forces $W$. The cross-section $A$ of the spring is subjected to a torsion, shearing force over area $A$, which makes produces a twisting of ...

Eccentrically loaded bolts in which the plane of loading is parallel to the bolt plane

This is the only natural explanation that I could think of. Assume that the beam is rotating about a common point O, as shown in the figure. The loading on the beam creates a clockwise torque, which ...
