Plane Stress
Plane StressIf a small region (or element) in a body is stressed, the stress state can be represented as shown in Fig. 2.21a. There are three principal normal stresses and also shear stresses on each face of the element (shown on only two faces in the figure). Now if the stress σZ is small relative to σX and σY, then the state of stress is referred to as a plane stress, since the normal stresses of finite or significant magnitude lie only in the X
