The estimation of the strain ellipse from data consisting of longitudinal strains measured along different directions is one of the basic problems of strain analysis and one which has recently received renewed attention. A graphical method based on the Mohr circle, described more than 40 years ago by Glenn Murphy but overlooked by geologists, represents the simplest solution of the problem yet devised.
