## Engineering strain

Engineering strain is unitless and is generally expressed as percentage in which the strain value is multiplied by 100. Engineering strain is used practically along with engineering stress.

## How to Calculate Engineering strain?

Engineering strain calculator uses Engineering strain=(Instantaneous length-Initial length)/Initial length to calculate the Engineering strain, Engineering strain is defined as the ratio of change in length and the original length before application of load/force. Engineering strain and is denoted by 𝜀 symbol.

How to calculate Engineering strain using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Engineering strain, enter Initial length (l0) and Instantaneous length (li) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Engineering strain calculation can be explained with given input values -> 1 = (0.02-0.01)/0.01.

### FAQ

What is Engineering strain?
Engineering strain is defined as the ratio of change in length and the original length before application of load/force and is represented as 𝜀=(li-l0)/l0 or Engineering strain=(Instantaneous length-Initial length)/Initial length. Initial length before the application of load and The instantaneous length is the length after application of load.
