The state of strain at the point on the leaf of the caster assembly has components of ex= – 400 x 10^-6, Ey= 860 x 10^-6, and yxy = 375 x 10^6. Use the strain transformation equations to determine the equivalent in-plane strains on an element oriented at an angle of 30 degrees counterclockwise from the original position. Sketch the deformed element due to these strains within the xy plane.
