This Demonstration generates Mohr's circles for plain stress. The input is stress values for σx,σy,σxy  at the x  and y  orthogonal faces oriented at zero angle.

The Demonstration calculates a Mohr's circle and generates other plots to illustrate how stress changes at different orientations as the angle of the plane is changed using the slider. Planar stress is assumed, therefore stresses in the z  direction are assumed to be zero.
