6.2 Types of Deformations
Three types of deformations can be distinguished as follows:
Longitudinal or Tensile Deformation
This is the deformation in length for an object in the form
of a wire or a cylinder of negligible cross- sectional area compared
to the length when the applied forces are parallel to the length.
This is the deformation in area and shape when applied forces
are parallel to a surface.
This is the deformation in volume and/or shape when applied
forces are normal to each and every point of the surface of the object.
