Homework Statement


http://web.mit.edu/course/16/16.unified/www/FALL/materials/documents/HO-M-6(Mohrs)(08).pdf

I found this on the Internet . At there , the author defined positive as counterclockwise rotation .
and also “
Positive shear would cause a clockwise rotation of the infinitesimal element about the element center.



In the notes , the author defined positive shear axis as upwards , if I draw positive shear axis as downwards , will it make the difference ? Is it necessary to define clockwise rotation as positive now ?

How about

Homework Equations




The Attempt at a Solution


IMO , it 's necessary to define clockwise rotation as positive . Correct me if I'm wrong .

Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
