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

Sun, 2017-07-23 00:17 - rajan_prithivi

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!

---------------------------------

This is an educational outreach initiative targeted at all engineers interested in mechanics and seek simpler explanations. Kindly share if you learn something out of this !

Here is the link to the VIDEO

Thanks,
