yield strength

[′yēld ‚streŋkth]
(mechanics)
The stress at which a material exhibits a specified deviation from proportionality of stress and strain.

yield strength

The stress at which a material exhibits a specified limiting deviation from the proportionality of stress to strain.

yield strength

The load on a material that causes the initial indication of permanent distortion. It is the stress point at which a material exhibits a specified deviation from the proportionality of the stress and strain. See yield point.

Also, the secondary precipitation takes place, which can explain the increase of yield strength.
Also, it can be observed that the low yield strength steel may reduce deformation.
According to another approach for yield strength evaluation on the basis of the SP test proposed in [12,16], the yield strength can be determined as a function of the force, corresponding to the initialization of the plastic deformation.
The mean differences between the experimental and control specimens for yield strength of the Unlocked group was 0.
This is a problem for ICT probing, since raw copper has yield strength an order of magnitude higher than solder.
It was observed that, in general, the yield strength and ultimate tensile strength of all the wires went hand in hand meaning, if the yield strength of one wire was more than the other, the ultimate tensile strength of the former was also more than the latter.
That is partly because the yield strength of some intermetallic compounds increases with increasing temperature in a certain high temperature range.
