The Change in Length due to Strain calculator computes the change in length based on an original length and a strain factor.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
Change in Length from Strain (ΔL): The calculator returns the change in length in millimeters. However this can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.
Strain is the deformation of a solid due to stress. Engineering stress is defined in terms of the change in length of a physical element (`Delta L`)divided by the original length of the physical element (`L_0`).
ΔL = L • ε
