Every structure or machine has to perform its intended function within a predetermined and acceptable probability of failure. Stress analysis addresses the strength and rigidity of structures and machines while under load. It predicts how force is carried through a structure or machine and how the materials at any point in any individual member resist the force. As such, stress analysis is essential to the design function and the analysis function. Every engineer who has to make a judgement on the strength and stability of any structure, machine or mechanism, no matter how simple or how complex, must understand the fundamental principles of stress analysis.
