Stress is the internal force exerted by one part of an elastic body upon the adjoining part, and strain is the deformation , properties of materials, dimensioning, gauging and measuring, fasteners, and machine elements. There is new material on solid geometry, calculating thread dynamics, fluid mechanics, CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) See numerical control.
