Drawing Mohr Circles

This may seem obvious to many Structural Geologists, but I rather enjoyed usng OS X's Grapher to graph a parametric equation of the Mohr Circle.  I also plotted fracture planes and the Mohr-Coloumb Criterion at all of the appropriate angles.  It was my first go of it, so perhaps I missed something important.  But it looks really good.

  1. If you're still interested in digital representations of Mohr Circles, check out this one I just created using Geogebra:

    The program I used to create it is also really useful for throwing together geometric representations of lots of other geology problems.
