Suppose that the known direct and shear strains associated with the given stress system are E,, E, and yxy (the actual relationships will be investigated later) and that we require to find the direct strain E, in a direction normal to the plane ED and the shear strain y produced by the shear stress acting on the plane ED. 29) where E ~ + is ~ /the ~ direct strain in the direction ED. From the geometry of the triangle E’C’D’ in which angle E’C’D’ = 7r/2 - y,, (E’D’)2 = (C’D’)2 + (CI E‘ )2 Y - 2(C’D’)(C’E’)C O S ( T / ~ - yXy) Y Fig.

16 Experimental values of principal strain using Mohr's circle. 57) A typical rosette would have Q = ,O = 45" in which case the principal strains are most conveniently found using the geometry of Mohr's circle of strain. Suppose that the arm a of the rosette is inclined at some unknown angle 8 to the maximum principal strain as in Fig. 15. Then Mohr's circle of strain is as shown in Fig. 16; the shear strains +yay +yb and 7, do not feature in the analysis and are therefore ignored. From Fig. e.

St. 6). 3 we have seen that a particular stress function form may be applicable to a variety of problems. Different problems are deduced from a given stress function by specifying, in the first instance, the shape of the body and then assigning a variety of values to the coefficients. The resulting stress functions give stresses which satisfy the equations of equilibrium and compatibility at all points within and on the boundary of the body. It follows that the applied loads must be distributed around the boundary of the body in the same manner as the internal stresses at the boundary.
