Like strain transformation, the Mohr’s circle for strain is just like the one for stress, except that σ_{x}, σ_{y},
τ_{xy} are converted to ε_{x}, ε_{y}, γ_{xy}/2 instead.

The construction steps are exactly the same as the Mohr’s circle for stress:

The construction steps are exactly the same as the Mohr’s circle for stress:

Like the Mohr’s circle for stress, you can obtain θ_{p}, θ_{s} and also strains based on other θ (e.g. θ = 30^{o}) from the Mohr’s circle for strain.

And again, like the Mohr’s circle for stress, we have the 3D strain Mohr’s circle.

We won’t go through the explanation of the 3rd strain dimension as the same principal was already covered in Chapter 7.4.

The main point is that there is also a γ_{abs-max}. Here, we present the 3 possible configurations of the 3D Mohr’s circle for strain:

Let’s look at an example now.
