Mohr’s Circle: A Graphical Method for Determining Stress Transformations

Course subject(s) 7. Stress Transformations

The plane stress transformation equations are cumbersome to remember and apply. We can exploit a property of these equations to come up with a graphical representation of plane stress transformations that is much easier to remember and provides a unique way to visualize the stress state at a point. In this video, we will develop┬áthis graphical method known as Mohr’s Circle.
