An attempt has been made to analyze asymmetric stress. Bounds for the principal stresses have been established in terms of the principal stresses corresponding to the symmetric part of the stress tensor. Sufficient conditions for the existence of one or three principal stresses have been established. Bounds have also been established for the maximum shear stress. Detailed results have been given for the case of a quasi two-dimensional stress distribution.
