Maximum Normal Stress Criterion solidworks simulation

The maximum normal stress criterion also known as Coulomb’s criterion is based on the Maximum normal stress theory. According to this theory failure occurs when the maximum principal stress reaches the ultimate strength of the material for simple tension. This criterion is used for brittle materials. It assumes that the …
