An elastic body is subjected to a tensile stress X in a particular direction and a compressive stress Y in its perpendicular direction. X and Y are unequal in magnitude. On the plane of maximum shear stress in the body there will be
[1989]
  • a)
    no normal stress
  • b)
    also the maximum normal stress
  • c)
    the minimum normal stress
  • d)
    both normal stress and shear stress
Correct answer is option 'C'. Can you explain this answer?

Assuming more tensile stress, hence the centre of the circle lies on positive side of X axis. So, the plane CP has maximum shear stress which has non zero normal stress.
