Chapter 7 Complex stress and strain

7.1 Stresses on oblique planes

Now, we know from simple stress theory that stresses normal to the applied tensile or compressive force (P) may be determined using the simple relationship where A0 is the cross-sectional area normal to (at right angles to) the applied force. This simple relationship relies on the assumption that the stresses created by the applied force are equally distributed over the whole of ...
