Stress analysis in alloy material: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (Redirected from Stress analysis ) Stress–strain analysis (or stress analysis ) is an engineering discipline that uses many methods to determine the stresses and strains in materials and structures subjected to forces . In continuum mechanics , stress is a physical quantity that expresses the internal forces that neighboring particles of a continuous material exert on each other, while strain is the measure of the deformation of the material. Stress analysis is a primary task for civil , mechanical and aerospace engineers involved in the design of structures of all sizes, such as tunnels , bridges and dams , aircraft and rocket bodies, mechanical parts, and even plastic cutlery and staples . Stress analysis is also used in the maintenance of such structures, and to investigate the causes of structural failures. Typically, the starting point for stress analysis are a geometrical description of the structure, the properties of the materials used for its parts, how the parts are joined, and the maximum or typical forces that are expected to be applied to the structure. The output data is typically a quantitative description of how the applied forces spread throughout the structure, resulting in stresses, strains and the deflections of the entire structure and each component of that structure.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
