Strain Calculator is a free online tool that displays the strain of the object or material. BYJU’S online strain calculator tool performs the calculation faster and it displays the deformation of the object in a fraction of seconds.

## How to Use the Strain Calculator?

The procedure to use the strain calculator is as follows:

Step 1: Enter the original length, change in length, and x for the unknown in the input field

Step 2: Now click the button “Calculate the Unknown” to get the result

Step 3: Finally, the strain of the object will be displayed in the output field

### What is Meant by Strain?

The strain is a dimensionless measure which is used to calculate the solid deformation. It is defined as the ratio of the change in length to the original length of the material. In other words, the strain is the change in the shape of the object with respect to the force applied to the object. The strain can be classified into different types, such as

• Normal strain – It is the ratio of the change in dimension of the object to its original dimension
• Shear strain –  It is defined as the angular distortion between two mutually perpendicular planes
• Volumetric strain – It is the ratio of the change in volume of the object to its original volume

The strain formula is given by

Strain = ΔL/L

Where

ΔL is the change in the length of the object

L is the original length of the object.
