Homework Help: 9 components of strain for a cubic

  1. Sep 7, 2016 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    why the strain of εxy , εxz , εyx , εzx , εyz , εzy is γ_xy / 2 , γ_xz / 2, γ_yx / 2, γ_zx / 2 , γ_yz / 2 ,
    and γ_zy / 2 ???

    how to get that ?.
    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution
    Taking an example of εxy , what does γ_xy / 2 mean ?
