Calculator Introduction

Given the stresses at a space point in the body, sx, sy, and txy, this calculator computes the stresses of the same space point in a rotated coordinate system, sx', sy', and tx'y'.

  Normal Stress sx:    
  Normal Stress sy:    
  Shear Stress txy:    
  Coordinate Rotation q:    
  New Normal Stress sx':  0  MPa
  New Normal Stress sy':  0  MPa
  New Shear Stress tx'y':  -1.00  MPa
Equations behind the Calculator
The following coordinate transformation equations were used,
