### Discussion :: Steel Structure Design - Section 2 (Q.No.26)

26.

When a load is transferred through one surface to another surface in contact, the stress is known as

 [A]. tensile stress [B]. compressive stress [C]. shearing stress [D]. working stress [E]. none of these.

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Rathi said: (Jan 29, 2016) Answer : Bearing stress. Bearing stress is defined as the stress that results from the contact of two members.

 Pooja said: (Jul 22, 2016) You are right @Rathi.

 Alok said: (Dec 3, 2016) Shearing stress conform.

 Raghv said: (Dec 27, 2016) Yes, It should be a Bearing Stress.

 Dilawar Khan said: (Jan 12, 2017) C is the correct answer.

 Ashish Tadewar said: (Mar 18, 2017) Bearing stress should be the right answer. Shearing stress can be produced in a section/body by unequal forces.

 Ashish Tadewar said: (Mar 18, 2017) Why not B? Compressive stress can also be the correct answer.

 Aiyush said: (Jun 6, 2017) It is shearing stress if stress transfer by friction but it is bearing stress.

 Ankit said: (Jul 22, 2017) Shearing also right. I agree.

 Ankit said: (Aug 9, 2017) Hers, Shear sterss / bearing stress is right.

 Krishan Jha said: (Aug 29, 2017) I think shearing stress is also right.

 Prashant said: (Oct 30, 2017) Shearing stress is confirmed.

 Chandu said: (Mar 20, 2018) Bearing stress is the correct answer. I also agree.

 Amit Kumar said: (Apr 1, 2018) Bearing stress is a correct answer.

 Vishal said: (Apr 30, 2018) Bearing stress is the correct answer.

 Ashu said: (May 12, 2018) If transfer by friction then Shearing but not mention hence answer is Bearing Stress.

 Hari said: (Oct 30, 2018) Bearing stress is the correct answer.

 Kuldeep said: (Nov 13, 2018) It is bearing stress.

 Manish Kumar said: (Jan 12, 2019) It is Bearing stress.

 Manish Yadav said: (Mar 16, 2019) Bearing stress is the correct answer.

 Dibya Jiban said: (Dec 11, 2019) Bearing stress is right answer.

 Huzaifa said: (May 5, 2020) Shearing stress is the correct answer.

 Ganesh said: (Jun 21, 2020) Bearing stress or compressive stress. Please explain the right one.

 Shams Khan said: (Sep 28, 2020) Bearing Stress is the right one.

 Abhishek said: (Apr 13, 2021) Bearing stress is the correct answer.

 Lokesh said: (May 3, 2021) Bearing stress should be the right answer.

 Anand Bharti said: (Jul 15, 2021) Shearing stress is the right answer.

 Ali Baloch said: (Aug 1, 2021) Shear stress is the correct one.
