  Stress (physics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The stress axis on a stress-strain graph is often engineering stress, even though the sample may undergo a substantial change in cross-sectional area during testing.
The SI unit for stress is the pascal (symbol Pa), the same as that of pressure.
Residual stresses are stresses that remain after the original cause of the stresses has been removed.

 Stress (physics)
In physics, the stress at a point in a material is the applied force per unit area.
To be exact, the stress at a point may be determined by taking the limit of the load being carried by a particular cross section, divided by that cross section, as the area of the cross section aproaches zero.
In general the stress may vary from point to point, but for simple cases, such as circular cylinders with pure axial loading, the stress is constant and equal to the cross-sectional area divided by the applied load.

 Stress (physics)
Augustin Louis Cauchy ennunciated the principle that, within a body, the forces that an enclosed volume imposes on the remainder of the material must be in equilibrium with the forces upon it from the rest of the body.
To be exact, the stress at a point may be determined by taking the limit of the load being carried by a particular cross section, divided by that cross section, as the area of the cross section approaches zero.
Because the force is a vector, the stress has two components, one in the plane of the area, A, the shear stress, and one perpendicular, the normal stress.

Stress can be a major problem for applications of thin films and ways of reducing or eliminating it are therefore very important.
In this project we will examine one of the key predictions of the thermal spike theory of stress generation, that is that low energy thermal spikes are quickly quenched and freeze in stress, whereas high energy thermal spikes relieve stress by creating a molten volume that quenches slowly enough to relieve stress.
We have studied high energy thermal spikes and shown that the stress relieving effect obeys the thermal spike theory in that the stress relief effect is proportional to the volume of thermal spikes created.
