**Formula:**`Strain Tensor`

## Introduction to Strain Tensor Equations

The strain tensor is a mathematical representation of the deformation of a material and is used in continuum mechanics to describe the displacement and distortion of material particles. The strain tensor is a 3x3 symmetric matrix that characterizes the displacement and distortion in three dimensions. The components of the strain tensor are denoted by ** e_xx, e_yy, e_zz, e_xy, e_xz, e_yz**.

## Parameter usage:

`e_xx`

: Normal strain in the x-direction`e_yy`

: Normal strain in the y-direction`e_zz`

: Normal strain in the z-direction`e_xy`

: Shear strain in the xy-plane`e_xz`

: Shear strain in the xz-plane`e_yz`

: Shear strain in the yz-plane

## Output:

Returns a strain tensor object containing the individual strain components.

## Data validation:

Each input value should be within a valid range for strain. For example, typical strain values for solids are in the range of -0.01 to 0.01.
