State of Stress – Stress Tensor

State of stress at a Point (Stress Tensor) Consider a three dimensional body in equilibrium under the action of a set of external forces P1,P2,P3.. , the stresses developed in different planes vary. To study the magnitude of these forces at any point let the body be divided into 2 parts A&B by a cross… Read More »
