MohrView plots Mohr circles and Coulomb failure envelopes.   MohrView calculates and plots other features such as principal stresses, stresses at failure, obliquity angle, resultant stress, and the critical angle.  (15599 bytes)
You can embed MohrView plots in OLE container applications, such as Microsoft Excel (shown here), other Microsoft Office applications, Corel WordPerfect Suite, and many other products.  This screen also shows a single failure envelope for multiple Mohr circles.  (25916 bytes)
mohr4.gif (15058 bytes) MohrView allows you to plot a plane oriented to the principal stresses.  Then calculate the pole stresses, and the normal and shear stresses on that plane.  (15058 bytes)
mohr5.gif (14961 bytes) MohrView accommodates both negative and positive normal stresses.   This diagram shows a plot of major and minor stresses, as well as intermediate principal stress.  (14961 bytes)
mohr6.gif (15307 bytes) Shown in this diagram is a Mohr circle and Coulomb failure envelope.   MohrView calculates and displays the normal and shear stresses at failure (15307 bytes)
