Homework Help: How to convert force displacement curve to stress strain curve

  1. Apr 6, 2009 #1
    i need help with this conversion as i am unsure how to approach this.
    I have obtained a force vs displacement curve from a Hounsfield materials testing machine, and would like to know how to convert this to a stress vs strain curve.

    How are stress and strain define? (show us some equations)

    This is a pretty simple problem, and I think if you look at the equations, you will be a lot closer to understanding what you need to do.
