[PrinciplePlanes]=ppstress(StressState)
function [PrinciplePlanes]=ppstress(StressState)
%PPSTRESS The principle planes of a stress state.
%   PPSTRESS([SIGMAX,SIGMAY,TAUXY]) Calculates the principle planes of a 
%   stress state.
%
%   SIGMAX:  Normal stress in the X direction.
%   SIGMAY:  Normal stress in the Y direction.
%   TAUXY:   Shear on the X-Y plane.
%   Together these three are gathered as the STRESSSTATE.
%
%   See also MOHRS, PRISTRESS, STRESS2STRAIN, STRESSTR.
