What is strain? Types Of Strain

Strain is the response of a system to an applied stress. When a material is loaded with a force, it produces a stress, which then causes a material to deform. Engineering strain is defined as the amount of deformation in the direction of the applied force divided by the initial length of the material.

Formula of Strain:

Strain = Change in the length of the body / Original length

e = extension = (l-lo), and
l = stretched length
