Stress is defined as the magnitude of internal resisting force develop at a point against the deformation cause due to external loads.

Different Types of Stresses

  1. Normal Stress
    1. Axial Stress or Linear Stress (Tensile stress or Compressive stress)
    2. Bending StressĀ (Tensile stress or Compressive stress)
  2. Shear Stress
    1. Direct Shear Stress
    2. Torsional Shear Stress
