Plane Stress is a loading situation on a cubic element where two faces the element is free of any stress.
Such a situation occurs on free surface of a structural element or machine component, at any point of the
surface of that element which is not subjected to an external force. Another example for plane stress is structures which are built from sheet metals where stresses across the thickness are negligible.
Plane stress transformation formulas used for the calculations are given in the List of Equations
section.
