Forces that tend to stretch, or pull something apart,
are known as tensile forces and they produce two
1. In trying to pull the bolt apart, internal resisting
forces are created and these internal forces are known
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.
Types of Stress

2. Compressive Stress
