The Strain Energy Due to Pure Shear, If Shear Stress Is Given

The Strain energy due to pure shear

is a type of potential energy that is stored in a structural member as a result of elastic deformation and is represented as

U = 𝜏*𝜏*V/(2*G)

(or)

strain_energy = Shear Stress*Shear Stress*Volume/(2*Shear Modulus).
