Understanding your strength

Material strength Strength is the highest value of stress that a material can hold. If a material gets a stress above this limit, the material will break. How do we know the strength of the material? By doing laboratory testing, we can understand this value. And what is stress? technically, stress is the quantity of load divided by perpendicular area of material that receives the load. The higher the load, the higher the stress. The smaller of the area, the higher the stress value. How to reduce the stress of material to avoid a material break? simply increase the area[…]
