stress ratio perhaps?

### RE: Meaning of S.R.?

The spreadsheet defines SR as different items in different cells. Doesn't look much like a ratio to me.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.

### RE: Meaning of S.R.?

to me is the ratio between actual stress divided by allowable stress : that is < 1 OK

or ,if you prefer, 1/SR > 1 safety coeff

### RE: Meaning of S.R.?
