The Mohr's Circle calculator provides an intuitive way of visualizing the state of stress at a point in a loaded material. See the reference section for details on the methodology and the equations used.
Uniform Principal Stress
Since the normal stresses on the element are equal and the shear stress is zero, the stresses on the element are uniform in every direction. Every direction is a principal direction -- the principal stresses are the same in every direction, and are equal to the specified normal stresses. Shear stresses are zero at every rotation angle (at least in the 2D case).
Mohr's Circle in this case has no diameter, and cannot be shown. However, this is a perfectly valid condition.
Stress On Unrotated Element
Specify the angle of the rotated element. Angles are with respect to the horizontal axis, and positive angles are counterclockwise.
Tip: You can mouse drag OR use keyboard arrow keys to adjust angle.
