Stress Analysis

  • Curt F. Kollbrunner

The normal stress components σ and the shear stress components τ shall satisfy the following usual sign convention: Stress components acting on a cross section whose outer normal points in the positive direction of some coordinate axis shall be considered to be positive whenever they point in the direction of a positive axis. If the cross section, on the other hand, has an outward normal pointing towards the negative part of the axis, then positive stress components point towards the negative parts of the coordinate axis as well.
