vCalc's Stress & Strain calculator provides fundamental definitions of stress and strain and associated deformations.1 


This calculator is organized into several tabs containing basic engineering equations as follows:

  • Fundamental Definitions -  this tab contains equations defining engineering strain, shear stress and strain, and thermal deformations.
  • Cylindrical Pressure Vessel - this tab contains equations defining axial, radial, and tangential stress on a closed cylindrical vessel.
