Stress

A state manifested by a syndrome or bodily changes, caused by some force, condition or circumstance e.g. constraints upon plant growth or survival caused by a harsh environment.

Stress

[psychological] In psychology, stress is a feeling of strain and pressure. Small amounts of stress may be desired, beneficial, and even healthy. Positive stress helps improve athletic performance. It also plays factor in motivation, adaptation, and reaction to the environment. Excessive amounts of stress however, may lead to many problems i...

Stress

In the science called rheology (the study of how materials flow and deform), stress is the force applied to a material and strain is the resulting movement of the material. A simple practical exercise is to measure the length of a rubber band 'at rest', then suspend an object of known weight from it (stress) and measure the change in its length (st...

Stress

Load on a specimen divided by the area through which it acts. As used with most mechanical tests, stress is based on original cross-sectional area without taking into account changes in area due to applied load. This sometimes is called conventional or engineering stress. True Stress is equal to the load divided by the instantaneous cross-sectional...

stress

The intensity of the internally distributed forces or components of forces that resist a change in the volume or shape of a material that is or has been subjected to external forces. Stress is expressed in force per unit area and is calculated on the basis of the original dimensions of the cross section of the specimen. Stress can be either direct ...

Stress

The product of the load on a body divided by the area subjected to load, originally expressed in foot-pounds per square inch. A body is in tension when the force tends to pull it apart. It is in compression when the force tends to squeeze the body together. The change in shape caused by tension or compression is called strain. Stress divided by str...

Stress

The force per unit area on body that tends to cause it to deform. It is a measure of the internal forces in a body between particles of the material of which it consists as they resist separation, compression, or sliding.

Stress

Physics has a strict definition of 'a force per unit area' and producing 'strain' in the body to which the force is applied. Biology has a wide variety of meanings, e.g. any condition that results in reduced growth, any condition that prevents an organism from realizing its 'genetic potential'. The word is often redundant, e.g. the effects of droug...
