sigmaTrans(theta, sigmaX = NA, sigmaZ = NA, tauXZ = NA,
           sigma1 = NA, sigma3 = NA)
MohrCircle.calc(sigmaX = NA, sigmaZ = NA, tauXZ = NA,
                sigma1 = NA, sigma3 = NA,
                theta = seq(from = 0, to = 180, by = 1))
MohrCircle.plot(sigmaX = NA, sigmaZ = NA, tauXZ = NA,
                sigma1 = NA, sigma3 = NA, metric = TRUE)
sigma13(sigmaX, sigmaZ, tauXZ)
tauMax(sigmaX, sigmaZ, tauXZ)

Arguments

sigmaX

normal stress acting in the horizontal direction

sigmaZ

normal stress acting in the vertical direction

tauXZ

shear stress acting on the same plane as sigmaX

sigma1

major principal stress

sigma3

minor principal stress

theta

angle of inclination (degrees) [see details below]

metric

units, if TRUE units are SI, if FALSE units are English
