A very detailed description of Mohr's circles, with an applet that appears to work well. For those that have had experience with Mohr's circles this applet would probably very useful. Otherwise, a user is going to have to spend a lot of time poring through the technical material and sort out what is going on. Definitely meant for those currently studying Mohr's circles in an upper-division course.

Technical Remarks:

Suffers from design problems. First, there is no need to carry out data to a dozen digits on the screen, which makes the graphics messy. Greek letters would clean up the appearance as well.
