Graphical construction of direction of shear

Shan, Y., Fry, Norman and Lisle, Richard John 2009. Graphical construction of direction of shear. Journal of Structural Geology 31 (5) , pp. 476-478. 10.1016/j.jsg.2008.08.008

A new graphical method is developed to determine the direction of the maximum resolved shear stress on a fault plane. It differs from existing graphical methods in using the direction perpendicular to the maximum resolved shear. It is based upon the theory of vector manipulation, making the proposed method more straightforward and more graphical, and, hence, we believe more accessible.
