Definition:  The stress which exists in an elastic solid body in the absence of, or in addition to, the stresses caused by an external load. Such stresses can arise from deformation during cold working such as cold drawing or stamping, in welding from weld metal shrinkage, and in changes in volume due to thermal expansion.
