Stress Measurement

Stress is a measure of how force affects the behavior of a sample across a surface area, often expressed in terms of PSI or Mpa. Where Strain deals with how force affects a sample’s change in shape, Stress is a measure of how the same force is applied across a specific area of the sample.
