**All Content of the Stress – Strain**

**Introduction :**In engineering practice, the machine parts are subjected to various forces which may be due to either one or more of the following:

- Energy Transmitted,
- Weight of machine,
- Frictional resistance,
- Inertia of reciprocating parts,
- Change of temperature, and
- Lack of balance of moving parts.

The different forces acting on a machine parts produces various types of stresses, which will be discussed in this chapter.

**Load :**It is defined as**any external force acting upon a machine part**. See more…**Stress and its types :**The internal force per unit area at any section of the body is known as**unit stress**or simply a**stress**. See more…**Strain and its types :**When a system of forces or loads act on a body, it undergoes some deformation. This deformation per unit length is known as**unit strain**or simply a**strain**.

See more…**Bearing Stress :**A localised compressive stress at the surface…see more**Stress-Strain Diagram :**Click here to see diagram…**Working Stress :**When designing machine parts, it is desirable to keep the stress lower then the maximum or ultimate stress at which failure of the material takes place. This stress is known as the working stress or design stress. It is also known as safe or allowable stress.

**Note**: By failure it is not meant actual breaking of the material. Some machine parts are said to fail when they

have plastic deformation set in them, and they no more perform their function satisfactory.**Factor of Safety :**It is defined, in general, as the ration of maximum stress to the working stress.
