Stress (mechanics), the average amount of force exerted per unit area. It is the internal resistance a material offers to being deformed and is measured in terms of the applied load. The effects of mechanical stress on a polymer can be measured using dynamic mechanical analysis.
Compressive stress, the stress applied to materials resulting in their compaction. It is the ability of a material to resist being crushed.
Tensile stress (also referred to as tension) is the stress state leading to expansion.
