v = [tex]\epsilon[/tex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{trans}/ [tex]\epsilon[/tex]_{axial}

where

ν is the resulting Poisson's ratio,

[tex]\epsilon[/tex]_{trans}is transverse strain

[tex]\epsilon[/tex]_{axial}is axial strain

and Poissions Ratio have range and its not more then 0.5 and not less then -1?

so my queston is how its value can turn "-1"?

As its already neative and its axial strain or transverse strain one must be negative so the value of Poissions Ratio will turn positive! what do you say!
