Deformation Sign Conventions

As can be seen in the previous diagram (left hand section vs. right hand section), we recognize that the algebraic sign does not depend on its direction in space, such as upward or downward or clockwise or counterclockwise. The sign depends on the direction of the stress resultant with respect to the material against which it acts.
