In the strength of materials, the neutral axis is the line wherein there are no stress and strain in the longitudinal axis. This axis is important in the distribution of stress and strain in a structural member.

The neutral axis is where the centroid is located, and it is passing this point perpendicularly to the cross-sectional plane.
