Can anyone please explain the stress fields in cylindrical coordinates? What is the difference between [tex]\sigma_{rz}[/tex] and [tex]\sigma_{\theta z}[/tex]? What is the difference between stress in the [tex]r[/tex] axis and stress in the [tex]\theta[/tex] axis? Thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
