The loads placed on a workpiece can basically be divided into static and dynamic. In the case of static loading, the workpiece is subject to an even, static load, which means that the material can be subjected to tension, compression, bending, twisting or shear. In the case of dynamic stress, however, the essential thing is the change in the state of stress. This can appear as a change in the size of the load or the direction of attack of the load, as a swelling or changing load or as a shock.

This chapter is part of the Springer Book Archives digitization project with publications that have appeared since the publisher's beginnings in 1842. With this archive, the publisher provides sources for both historical and disciplinary research, which must be viewed in a historical context. This chapter is from a book that was published before 1945 and is therefore not advertised by the publisher in its political-ideological orientation typical of the time.
