# Stress

stress - define intrinsic stresses in materials for use in stress
calculations.

## Synopsis

### stress

[Material Specification]
(
[sxxi = <n>]
[syyi = <n>]
[szzi = <n>]
[sxyi = <n>]
[syzi = <n>]
[szxi = <n>]
[pressi = <n>]
)

## Description

Stress parameters for a material are set. These parameters are
used as intrinsic stresses in a material for use in stressSolve

- Material
Specification
- Please see the introduction for information on material
specification.
- sxxi, syyi, szzi, sxyi, syzi, szxi
- The intrinsic stresses in dynes/cm^2.
- pressi
- The intrinsic pressure in dynes/cm^2.

## Examples

stress nitride syyi=1.4e10

Set the y-component of the intrinsic stress in the nitride to
1.4e10 dynes/cm^2.

## Bugs and Missing Features

Currently works only in two-dimensions.
