|tensile stress |
See under axial stress.
The tensile stress on the steel may be 16,000 lb per sq. in.
Cobalt, curiously enough, was found to be quite unaffected by tensile stress.
The knot, especially (as is often the case) if there is a season check in it, offers little resistance to this tensile stress.
It is a simple matter to find the tensile stress in that part of a plain concrete chimney between two radii on the windward side.
By doubling the quantities of concrete and steel, which would mean a tensile stress in the steel of only 8,000 lb.
It means to reinforce for the stretch in the concrete and not for the tensile stress.
