Stress Transformation
• Transforming stress components from one coordinate system to
another at a given point.
• Relating stresses on different planes that pass through a point.

Learning Objectives
• Learn the equations and procedures of relating stresses (on different
planes) in different coordinate system at a point.

• Develop the ability to visualize planes passing through a point on
which stresses are given or are being found, particularly the planes of
maximum normal stress and maximum shear stress.

Wedge Method
• The fixed reference coordinate system in which the entire problem is
described is called the global coordinate system.
• A coordinate system that can be fixed at any point on the body and has
an orientation that is defined with respect to the global coordinate system is called the local coordinate system.
