This article describes computer programs designed to help the student visualize pure and simple shear, but also any combination, two-dimensional deformation. The concepts of finite strain and strain history are addressed through the visualization of a progressively deforming box, in which the rotation and extension or shortening of material lines can be studied, and the trajectories of material points can be traced. -from Authors
