    How is equivalent strain calculated in 2D?

    Debbie Zhao

      SolidWorks provides equations for calculating the equivalent strain (ESTRN) from strain components given in: 2017 SOLIDWORKS Help - Strain Components

       

      I am wondering how ESTRN is calculated in 2D (i.e. using only EPSX, EPSY and GMXY) - if it is possible?
