The word strain is frequently used for the internal force in a body, or stress. It is present practice, to use the word strain as a synonym for deformation only. The expression "stress and strain" is equivalent to the expression "stress and deformation". Due to the conflicting meanings of the word strain it has been suggested to me that "strain" be avoided and deformation be used instead. I believe I have a physics book that defines strain as deformation per unit length.
