North Carolina State University Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering MAE 314 Solid Mechanics 1 Supplemental Material: Mohr’s Circle for Plane Stress For the given state of stress determine the principal planes, principle stresses, and the orientation of the planes of maximum in plane shearing stress. Also determine the normal and shearing stresses after the element has been rotated 30 o clockwise and 12 o counterclockwise. First, recall the positive stress state is defined as below. So, from the given stress state, we have: σ x = 60 MPa, σ y = 90 MPa, and τ xy = 30 MPa. Construction of Mohr’s Circle Step 1. Draw the axis and plot O ( σ avg , 0), which is the center of the circle. Step 2. Plot points X ( σ x , ± τ xy ) and Y ( σ y , ± τ xy ). Step 3. Draw a line connecting points X, Y, and O. This is the diameter of the circle. Step 4. Draw the circle. 90 MPa 30 MPa 60 MPa + σ y + τ xy + σ x

So point X is ( σ x , ‐τ xy )=( 60, 30) since, for the given stress state, the shear on the element face perpendicular to the x axis rotates the element counterclockwise.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
