Stress is the force per unit area within materials that arises from
externally applied forces, uneven heating, or permanent deformation and that
permits an accurate description and prediction of elastic, plastic, and fluid
behaviour. Stress is expressed as a quotient of a force divided by an area.
The RVmagnetics Microwire Sensor is extremely sensitive to physical force,
thus can provide real-time measurements on stress. It has also no operating
