```Hello, everyone.
I'm a beginner to use Mathematica. I tried to solve the stress field
using Airy's method and plot the stress fields but Mathematica claimed
that the complex fuction could not display. Following code is what I
typed in. Does anyone help me with showing how to plot complex function?
(* Displacement, strain and stress expressed in terms of complex
function: *)
(* Diaplacement, starain and stress expressed in terms lf complex
functions: *)
(*  Complex funciton*)
Clear[W,Phi,Psi,SigA,SigB,SigC,z];
ComplexExpand[ W[z_] := Conjugate[z]Phi[z] + Integrate[Psi[z],z],
{W,Phi,Psi,z}];
ComplexExpand[ SigA[z_] := Re[2*(D[Phi[z],z] + Conjugate[D[Phi[z],z]])],
{Phi,Psi,z} ];
ComplexExpand[ SigB[z_] := Re[2*(Conjugate[z]*D[Phi[z],{z,2}] +
D[Psi[z],z])], {Phi,Psi,z} ];
ComplexExpand[ SigC[z_] := Im[Conjugate[z]*D[Phi[z],{z,2}] +
D[Psi[z],z]], {Phi,Psi,z} ];
(* stress field *)
Clear[sigxx,sigyy,sigxy]
ComplexExpand[sigxx[z_] := (SigA[z]-SigB[z])/2, {SigA,SigB,z} ];
ComplexExpand[sigyy[z_] := (SigA[z]+SigB[z])/2, {SigA,SigB,z} ];
ComplexExpand[sigxy[z_] := SigC[z], {SigC,z} ];
(* strain *)
Clear[epsxx,epsyy,epsxy]
ComplexExpand[epsxx[z_] := 1/E*((1-nu^2)*sigxx[z] - nu(1-nu)*sigyy[z]),
{z,sigxx,sigyy}]
ComplexExpand[epsyy[z_] := 1/E*( -nu(1-nu)*sigxx[z] + (1-nu^2)*sigyy[z]),
{z,sigxx,sigyy}]
ComplexExpand[epsxy[z_] := 1/E*2*(1-nu)*sigxy[z], {z,sigxy}]
(* displacement *)
ComplexExpand[ u[z_] := 1/(2G)*Re[k*Phi[z] - z Conjugate[D[Phi[z],z]] -
Conjugate[D[Psi[z],z]]], {Phi,Psi,z} ];
ComplexExpand[ v[z_] := 1/(2G)*Im[k*Phi[z] - z Conjugate[D[Phi[z],z]] -
Conjugate[D[Psi[z],z]]], {Phi,Psi,z} ];

(* Example *)
Clear[A,B]
ComplexExpand[ Phi[z_] := A*z, {Phi,z} ];
ComplexExpand[ Psi[z_] := B*Log[z], {Psi,z} ];
A = 1; B = 1;
