Enter the original axial length (in) and the axial strain (in/in) into the Axial Deformation Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Axial Deformation.

## Axial Deformation Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Axial Deformation.

AD = ε * L

Variables:

- AD is the Axial Deformation (in)
- ε is the original axial length (in)
- L is the axial strain (in/in)

To calculate the axial deformation, multiply the original axial length by the axial strain.

## How to Calculate Axial Deformation?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Axial Deformation.

- First, determine the original axial length (in).
- Next, determine the axial strain (in/in).
- Next, gather the formula from above = AD = ε * L.
- Finally, calculate the Axial Deformation.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

original axial length (in) = .75

axial strain (in/in) = 3

AD = ε * L** **= ?
