The result of the applied force and the actual cross area at the moment of applying force tn that area is called true stress.
Where as, the applied force divided by the initial cross section area is called as engineering stress.
As the measurement of the actual cross section area is difficult, so the calculation of true stress.
Needless to say that units of both types of stress is same.
