How are principal planes & eigen vectors of the stress tensor related ? | An intuitive explanation

To obtain the principal planes we construct the stress tensor and find the eigen vectors. Here is an attempt to explain it more intuitively rather than the use of the formal mathematical method. Hope you enjoy this video!

What are Principal Stresses (explained without math equations) ?

 

In the following video, I have tried to explain the concept of principal stress in a more physical way and without involving any mathematical equations, hope you can easily imbibe the concept.

PhD position in computational solid mechanics

Aalto University (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, is looking for a doctoral student for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel modelling methods that can be used reliably on different scales. In addition to the computational work, we will perform experiments on this topic.

Post doc position in computational solid mechanics

We in Aalto Univeristy (Finland), Department of Mechanical Engineering, look for a post doc to join our group for a study on the breakage and fragmentation of ice blocks under compressive loads. The fragmentation process is complicated and requires the use of novel experiments and numerical models, and in this research, you will be working on both. The unique experiments on this topic will be performed in the cold room of the department.  Numerical modelling will be done on a variety of scales.
