Arif-
von Mises stress is a stress-invariant which is used in yield criteria
for materials. A brief explanation can be found in Roark's Formula for
Stress & Strain. As a stress-invariant it is calculated independent of
the coordinate reference frame and it does not carry directional stress
information, such as normal and shear stresses, but carries enough to
identify hot-spots where failure might occur.
