... of Principle Stress Determination of Principle Stress In mechanical science, it is always important to determine the maximum normal stress that is induced at a certain point. But there are cases where there can be multiple number of planes that pass through a point. This way, the normal stress on each of the plane differs from one another. However, in one plane, normal stress value may be of a maximum value. Such a plane is referred to as the principal plane or maximum principal plane. On the other hand, the normal stress along this plane is referred to as the principle stress or the maximum principle stress. Likewise, the value of normal stress be maximum in another plane. This plane is known as...
