This function takes the two principle stresses (usually found through
Mohr's Circle), the ultimate tensile strength of the material, and the
units in which these values are defined (if the units input is not
included, no units are displayed on the resulting plot) and plots
the Max Shear Stress and Distortion Energy (von Mises) curves as well as
the position of the current stress state. This function is to be used only
to visualize the MSS and DE curves.
This function does not return an output in the form of a variable. The
output is a plot generated on screen. Examples of how to use this
function are below.
siga = -10;
sigb = 7;
sut = 40;
siga = 30;
sigb = -18;
sut = 65;
