What is the formula for Shearing (or) Rigidity strain?

Posted in Elasticity | Email This Post Email This Post |

When a deforming force is applied on the body produces change in shape of body then this strain is called the shearing strain. Solids alone can have a shearing strain.

The formula for Shearing (or) Rigidity strain is given as,

Shearing strain = Relative displacement of any layer / Its distance from fixed layer

As the linear strain is ratio of lengths, it has no unit and dimension.

In the above figure  shearing strain = Δx / h.
