plastic yield

plastic flow, plastic deformation

The deformation of a plastic material beyond the point of recovery, accompanied by continuing deformation with no further increase in stress; results in a permanent change in shape.

Plastic Yield Criterion and Fracture Propagation Criterion of the Soft Coal Seam.
In the stage of plastic deformation, with the increase in the model size, the limit yield stress and the corresponding yield strain of the material decrease and the plastic yield point moves forward.
The plastic yield function, damage, and healing evolution equations are plugged into the consistency condition.
(3) Plastic yield deformation phase: in this phase, the curve exhibited an ascending tendency in the upward concave profile; that is, the curve ascended with gradual decreases in the slope until the peak value was reached.
"The average plastic yield over these seven years is 16t/ha which is over 3t/ha more than the open maize and most of this extra yield is high value starch."
The stress-strain behavior of MPR is linear with no evidence of a "plastic yield" point like TPEs, and MPR recovers elastically from 100% strain.

The Plastic Yield Stress, defined as the stress at which the stress/strain curve became approximately horizontal, was higher for the axial specimens than for the transverse specimens.
where [[Omega].sub.ij] is the activation volume tensor, and the quantity [[Omega].sub.ij]/f denotes the volume of the polymer segment needed to move as a whole for plastic yield to occur, while yield occurs when the magnitude of shear stress reaches a critical value.
Furthermore, it has been recognized that volume relaxation, viscoelastic response and plastic yield share the same structural relaxation mechanism (12).
