Synonym3:
Symbol: τ
Definition: scalar quantity equal to the tangential component dFt of a force acting on a surface element divided by the area dA of the element, thus τ = dFt / dA

NOTE 1 In anisotropic media, shear stress may depend on the orientation of the surface and may be described by tensor.

NOTE 2 The coherent SI unit of shear stress is pascal, Pa.
