Resource type: Video/animation
Description: This lecture video proceeds to show how the parametric equations previously derived for the normal and shear stresses as functions of rotation angle theta conform to the equation of a circle (σ−h)² + τ² = r². From this, the construction of Mohr's circle is shown and that the stress state is represented by any point on the circle.
Keywords: stress • stress tensor • normal stress • shear stress • principal stresses • Mohr's circle • derivation
