Calculator Introduction

Given the strain components ex, ey, and exy, this calculator computes the principal strains e1 and e2, the principal angle qp, the maximum shear strain exy max and its angle qs. It also illustrates an approximate Mohr's cirlce for the given strain state.

Inputs
 Normal Strain ex: Normal Strain ey: Shear Strain exy:
 Maximum Normal Stain e1: 1.65 Minimum Normal Strain e2: -0.547 Principal Angle qp: 32.9  deg Maximum Shear Strain exymax: 1.10 Maximum Shear Angle qs1: 77.9  deg and qs2: -12.1  deg

Note: The strain measure exy is used in this calculation. Please adjust accordingly when using the engineering shear strain .

The Mohr's circle associated with the above strain state is similar to the following figure. However, the exact loaction of the center eAvg, the radius of the Mohr's circle R, and the principal angle qp may be different from what are shwon in the figure.
