  Strength of Materials



Forces that tend to stretch, or pull something apart, are known as tensile forces and they produce two important effects:

1. In trying to pull the bolt apart, internal resisting forces are created and these internal forces are known as stress.

2. The length of the bolt will increase, and this change in the boltís dimensions is known as strain.

Stress is calculated by dividing the applied force by the cross-sectional area of the bolt.
