Suppose SZ is a simply connected domain in the complex plane. In (F.G. Avhadiev, Matem. Sborn., 189(12) (1998), 3–12 (Russian)), Avhadiev introduced new geometrical functionals, which give two-sided estimates for the torsional rigidity of Ω. In this paper we find sharp lower bounds for the ratio of the torsional rigidity to the new functionals. In particular, we prove that 3Ic(Ω)2P(Ω), where P(Ω) is the torsional rigidity of Ω, Ic(Ω)=ΩR2(z,Ω)dxdy and R(z,Ω) is the conformal radius of Ω at a point z.
