## Mohr's circle for 2-D stress analysis

This Java applet is used to draw any Mohr's circle for 2-D stress analysis, given any set of stresses : sigma_x, sigma_y, and tau_xy.

The three small windows at the bottom should be typed in with the three stress components: sigma_x, sigma_y, and tau_xy, respectively.

After the data for the Mohr's circle are input, press the button "Draw", then the Mohr's circle can be created; press the button "fill", the Mohr's circle are created and filled with red color. If the Mohr's circles are too small, press the button "size 1" or "size 2" to enlarge them. Whenever the data for the Mohr's circle are modified, press "Draw" or "fill" button to get modified Mohr's circle. Besides, the paramters for the Mohr's circle and calculated principal stresses and maximum shear stress are given too.

Note that the origin of the coorinates is given in the form of O(n, 0). Read the number on the sigma axis and add it to the n to get the final result (multiplied by the scalar).

## Mohr's circles for 3-D stress analysis

This Java applet is used to show any Mohr's circles for 3-D stress analysis, given any set of stresses : sigma_x, sigma_y, sigma_z, tau_xy, tau_yz, and tau_xz.

The six text areas at the bottom should be typed in with the six stress components: sigma_x, sigma_y, sigma_z, tau_xy, tau_yz, and tau_xz, respectively.

After the data for the Mohr's circles are input, press the button "Draw", then the Mohr's circles can be created; press the button "fill", the Mohr's circles are created and filled with colors. If the Mohr's circles are too small, press the button "size 1" or "size 2" to enlarge them. Whenever the data for the Mohr's circles are modified, press "Draw" or "fill" button to get modified Mohr's circles. Besides, the paramters for the Mohr's circles and calculated principal stresses and maximum shear stresses are given too.

Note that the origin of the coorinates is given in the form of O(n, 0). Read the number on the sigma axis and add it to the n to get the final result (multiplied by the scalar).
