  Stress (physics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Stress strain diagrams are usually presented as engineering stress, even though the sample may undergo a substantial change in cross-sectional area during testing.
Being a vector, the stress has two components, one in the plane of the area, A, the shear stress, and one perpendicular, the normal stress.
Plot the state of stress on the x-plane as the point A whose abscissa is the magnitude of the normal stress (tension is positive), and whose ordinate is the shear stress (counter-clockwise shear is negative).

 Analysis of Stress
Mathematically, the state of stress at a point in an elastic body is determined by six independent stress components and is specified by a second-order symmetric Cartesian tensor, also known as the stress tensor.
You assume the sign of a stress component is positive when its direction and the normal vector of the surface, on which the component of the stress tensor is acting, are of the same sign.
This is a vector representation of the symmetric stress tensor.

For lithostatic stress the magnitude of the stress is independent of the orientation of the plane, the stress is always perpendicular to the plane, and the shear component is always zero.

Stress is an adaptive response that has developed in all animals to help them respond to threatening situations and other stressors.
Because of this stress response, you are ready to either flee from or to battle with the bear.
Unfortunately, when our stress response is sustained for long periods of time, perhaps due to a demanding boss or work schedule, then the stress response may be less adaptive and eventually lead to health problems.

Maximum shear stress is on two planes at 45° to the principal stresses, called the conjugate planes of maximum shear stress.
With increased stress, failure occurs at a stress that is called the 'strength' of the material.

Stressful events may cause men and women who have relatively low levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin (and therefore a higher risk for depression or anger) to produce more of certain immune system proteins (called cytokines), which in high amounts cause inflammation and damage to cells, including possibly heart cells.
Stress may cause physiologic alterations, such as increased adrenal hormone levels or resistance in the arteries, that may interfere with normal blood flow to the placenta.

 3D Stress Modelling - SMC Research
Normal stress is high (red) on shallow surfaces perpendicular to gravity and low on the steeply dipping tops of the faults, indicating where faults are likely to dilate in extension.
In this case, the highest normal stresses are to be found, as expected, on the steeply dipping areas of the fault perpendicular to the major principal stress orientation.
It is envisaged that simple stress analysis such as this can be incorporated into 3D modelling of fault sealing and fluid flow in order to refine the mathematical prediction of clay/shale smear development in fault zones.

 Measurements of Normal Stress Differences in Polymer Melts at High Shear Rates   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
First normal stress difference, N1, is presently measured using a cone/plate rheometer, however, this only provides measurements to a maximum shear rate of 10 sec^-1 due to edge fracture of the melt and other flow instabilities.
Regarding the measurement of the second normal stress difference, N2, a survey of the literature has shown that there is only a modest amount of experimental work on this topic.

NEGATIVE NORMAL STRESS, discovered by physicists a quarter-century ago, is a poorly understood attraction between two parallel plates that occurs when certain complex fluids flow between them.
In addition to the tangential stress, they react with a positive normal stress--a force that acts perpendicular to the plates.
The striking difference between these two systems is that one is a fairly dilute suspension of nanofibers while the second is a concentrated suspension of soft spheres, and yet they show the same response, suggesting some underlying universal phenomenon which is now being further investigated.

We report new frictional strength data for the serpentine mineral chrysotile at effective normal stresses between 40 and 200 MPa in the temperature range 25-280°C. Triaxial friction experiments were performed using a 1-mm-thick layer of chrysotile gouge placed along a sawcut surface in antigorite driving blocks.
Overall, the coefficient of friction of water-saturated chrysotile gouge increases both with increasing temperature and effective normal stress, but the temperature-related increases begin at about 100°C. For heated chrysotile, the rate of increase in coefficient of friction with increasing effective normal stress is 3-4 times higher below 100 MPa than above.
As a result, a minimum in the coefficient of friction (<0.1) occurs at normal stresses below 50 MPa at about 100°C. Maximum coefficient of friction (>0.55) results from a combination of effective normal stresses >150 MPa and temperatures >250°C. The low-strength region is characterized by velocity-strengthening and the high-strength region by velocity-weakening behavior.

 Normal Stress
NORMAL STRESS is the intensity of the net forces acting normal (perpendicular) to an infinitely small area dA within an object per unit area.
If the normal stress acting on dA pulls on it, then it is referred to as tensile stress, whereas if it pushes on the area, it is called compressive stress.
An average normal stress at any point on the cross sectional area can be calculated as follows:

 All about Stress at Medical-Information.Org
Stress is defined as a nonspecific response of the body to any demand made upon it which results in symptoms such as rise in the blood pressure, release of hormones, quickness of breathe, tightening of muscles, perspiration, and increased cardiac activity.
Some stress keeps us motivated and alert, while too little stress can create problems.
However, too much stress can trigger problems with mental and physical health, particularly over a prolonged period of time.

 Effects of normal stress variation on the strength and stability of creeping faults
A central problem in studies of fault interaction and earthquake triggering is that of quantifying changes in frictional strength and the constitutive response caused by dynamic stressing.
We imposed normal stress vibrations on creeping laboratory shear zones to investigate the process of dynamic weakening and the conditions under which resonant frictional behavior occurs.
