Least squares best-fit Mohr circles (with applications to Mohr's diagram)

Lisle, Richard John 1992. Least squares best-fit Mohr circles (with applications to Mohr's diagram). Mathematical Geology 27 (5) , pp. 455-461. 10.1007/BF00890529

Procedures are outlined for the selection of a least squares best-fit circle to data points defined by rectangular Cartesian coordinates. Equations are derived to allow fitting of circles centered on the x-axis as well as off-axis Mohr circles. These procedures are applicable to the estimation of second-order tensors such as stress and strain by means of Mohr's diagram.
