Stresses on a Octahedral plane 
Consider now a tetrahedron element similar to that of figure 4.5 with a plane equally inclined to the principal axes. Hence, its normal is given by

obtained using (4.5) and the spectral representation for the Cauchy stress (4.16). Similarly, the shear traction, τoct on this plane is

Figure 4.5: Eight octahedral planes equally inclined to the principal axes.

From the definition of principal invariants for stress (4.15) it is easy to verify that
