A stress resists a force tending to make one layer of a body slide across another layer.

Related Terms

DIELECTRIC STRENGTH

A measure of the ability of an insulating material to withstand electric stress (voltage) without failure. Fluids with high dielectric strength (usually expressed in volts or kilovolts) are good electrical insulators. (ASTM Designation D 877.)

COMPRESSOR

A device which converts mechanical force and motion into pneumatic flow power.

HEAVE

The oscillatory vertical rise and fall, due to the entire hull being lifted by the force of the sea. Also called HEAVING

LAMINAR FLOW

A flow situation in which fluid moves in parallel lamina or layers.

FRICTION

The resisting force encountered at the common boundary between two bodies when, under the action of an external force, one body, moves or tends to move relative to the surface of the other.

PUMP

A device which converts mechanical force and motion into hydraulic fluid power.

BULK MODULUS (OF ELASTICITY)

A ratio of normal stress to a change in volume. A term used in determining the compressibility of a fluid. Data for petroleum products can be found in the International Critical Tables.

LIQUID

Any substance that flows readily or changes in response to the smallest influence. More generally, any substance in which the force required to produce a deformation depends on the rate of deformation rather than on the magnitude of the deformation.

SCC

Stress corrosion cracking.

HEELING ERROR INSTRUMENT

Heeling adjuster. Also called VERTICAL FORCE INSTRUMENT
