# Euler-Almansi strain

## Description

Deformation in continuum mechanics is the transformation of a body from a reference configuration to a current configuration.

Strain is a normalized measure of deformation representing the displacement between particles in the body relative to a reference length.The concept of strain is used to evaluate how much a given displacement differs locally from a rigid body displacement.

The Eulerian-Almansi finite strain tensor is referenced to the deformed configuration.

## Variables

ϵ_{E} | Euler-Almansi strain (dimensionless) |

l | The final length of the material (m) |

L | The original length of the material (m) |
