## Poisson Ratio Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Poisson's Ratio = Lateral Strain/Longitudinal Strain
𝛎 = Sd/εlongitudinal
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Poisson's Ratio - Poisson's Ratio is defined as the ratio of the lateral and axial strain. For many metals and alloys, values of Poisson’s ratio range between 0.1 and 0.5.
Lateral Strain - Lateral Strain is ratio of change in diameter to original diameter.
Longitudinal Strain - The Longitudinal Strain is ratio of change in length to original length.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Lateral Strain: 0.6 --> No Conversion Required
Longitudinal Strain: 40 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
𝛎 = Sd/εlongitudinal --> 0.6/40
Evaluating ... ...
𝛎 = 0.015
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.015 --> No Conversion Required
0.015 <-- Poisson's Ratio

## Poisson Ratio Formula

Poisson's Ratio = Lateral Strain/Longitudinal Strain
𝛎 = Sd/εlongitudinal

## Poisson's ratio

It is a measure of the effect that causes the deformation of a material in directions perpendicular to the specific direction of loading.

## Poisson’s ratio values for different material

It is the ratio of transverse contraction strain to longitudinal extension strain, in the direction of the stretching force. There can be a stress and strain relation that is generated with the application of force on a body-
For tensile deformation, Poisson’s ratio is positive.
For compressive deformation, it is negative.

## How to Calculate Poisson Ratio?

Poisson Ratio calculator uses Poisson's Ratio = Lateral Strain/Longitudinal Strain to calculate the Poisson's Ratio, poisson ratio is an effect that describes the deformation of an object or material under a specific load. Poisson's Ratio is denoted by 𝛎 symbol.

Here is how the Poisson Ratio calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.015 = 0.6/40.

### FAQ

What is Poisson Ratio?
poisson ratio is an effect that describes the deformation of an object or material under a specific load and is represented as 𝛎 = Sd/εlongitudinal or Poisson's Ratio = Lateral Strain/Longitudinal Strain. Lateral Strain is ratio of change in diameter to original diameter & The Longitudinal Strain is ratio of change in length to original length.
How to calculate Poisson Ratio?
poisson ratio is an effect that describes the deformation of an object or material under a specific load is calculated using Poisson's Ratio = Lateral Strain/Longitudinal Strain. To calculate Poisson Ratio, you need Lateral Strain (Sd) & Longitudinal Strain longitudinal). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Lateral Strain & Longitudinal Strain and hit the calculate button.
