Question
What is the difference between stress and strength?
 Question Submitted By :: Hdgolakiya

  Re: What is the difference between stress and strength?
Answer
# 1
Stress terms

A material being loaded in a) compression, b) tension, c)
shear.Uniaxial stress is expressed by
stress=F/A
where F is the force [N] acting on an area A [m2].
But we cannot compare stress with strength.

Answer
# 2
the difference between the stress and strength is............
stress= load/ area ( n/mm2) .. it denotes that the load x will act in 1 mm2 of area of a structure,
strength denotes that max. stress upto which the structure get failure.

Answer
# 3
Stress is result of loading whereas strength is the
therotical value calulated on the basis of crystal structure
and chemical composition.

For both the units and measurement systems are same.

In short we can say that while loading the material stresses
are produced and not the strength.

Answer
# 4
for stress and strength the measurement units are same.

stress (may be in tension or compression or shear)is the
pressure developed on application of loads ,on a structure.

strength is the maximum stress the structure can withstand.

  Re: What is the difference between stress and strength?
Answer
# 6
Stress is the force per unit area, it depends on area of
structure, while
Strength is the resistance to maximum stress at the time of
failure, it does not depend on area...

  Re: What is the difference between stress and strength?
Answer
# 7
Strength is an extrinsic property of the material. It is
derived outcome of heat treatment processes. It is a
function of grain size, No of slip planes within a grain
etc. Therefore strength defines capacity of a material to
carry loads.
Stress is an internal resistance/force per unit area in the
material, generated due to application of external force.
Incidently, both have same units as strength is also
measured by force/area.

  Re: What is the difference between stress and strength?
Answer
# 8
Stress is a measure of the load applied to a sample
relative to a cross sectional area of the sample. Strength
is a quantification of the samples ability to carry a load.

  Re: What is the difference between stress and strength?
Answer
# 9
its simple

stress is the force(KN)acting in a cross sectional area
and strain is the ability to withstand that stress.

  Re: What is the difference between stress and strength?
Answer
# 10
Strength mean maximum calculated load that a member take without failure.
but stress mean internal reaction of a member in time of loadin
