side figure shows the state of stresses when the element is rotated by an angle
φ.
In this case, the normal stresses are σ'

To construct Mohr's circle we use a Cartesian coordinate system with the x-
axis corresponding to the normal stresses (σ), and the y-axis corresponding to

the shear stresses (τ).
Locate the points A(σ

the segment AB. The point C where the segment AB crosses the σ
axis will

be the center of the circle. Notice that the coordinates of point C are (½⋅(σ

+ σ
), 0).
When constructing the circle by hand, you can use a compass to
xy
trace the circle since you know the location of the center C and of two points,
A and B.
Let the segment AC represent the x-axis in the original state of stress. If you
want to determine the state of stress for a set of axes x'-y', rotated
counterclockwise by an angle
with respect to the original set of axes x-y,
draw segment A'B', centered at C and rotated clockwise by and angle
