Within the proposed earlier model we study effects of stress $\sigma_1-\sigma_2$ on the \dkdp type ferroelectrics. In the cluster approximation for the short-range correlations, we calculate dielectric, piezoelectric, and elastic characteristics of a strained by $\sigma_1-\sigma_2$ \dkdp type crystal. Numerical analysis of the obtained results is performed. Stress dependences of the calculated characteristics and the phase diagram are explored. Possibility of the induced by $\sigma_1-\sigma_2$ phase transition into a new paraelectric phase with monoclinic symmetry is discussed.
Key words: shear stress, monoclinic phase, phase diagram,
