Rosette Data Reduction

A calculator for
Principal Stresses & Strains
With strain measurements made with a rectangular rosette on homogeneous, linearly elastic, orthotropic materials.

Independent Variables
Modulus of Elasticity (psi, Pa, etc.),  
Poisson's Ratio (nondimensional),  
Measured Strains (microstrain), , ,

Dependent Variable
Principal Stresses (psi, Pa, etc.),  
Direction * (degrees),

* Direction from Grid 1 to the maximum principal stress axis:
if = and < , then = = -45 degrees.
if = and > , then = = +45 degrees.
if = = , then is indeterminate (equal biaxial strain).
