## Using the Combined Stress Tool

In bodies under plane stress, MEboost’s combined stress tool calculates various stresses that allow for comparison to a yield strength in uniaxial tension.  These stresses are used in conjunction with failure theories to determine suitability of a design. The tool calculates the following: Von Mises stress In-plane principal stresses Maximum shear stresses (in-plane and out …
