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.

Titanium 6-6-2 was chose for the landing gear assembly because it has the yield strength to meet conventional aircraft load requirements (175,000 to 210,000 psi in the heat-treated condition) and also maintains the extreme low weight required in rotor-craft design (density 0.
At room temperature the highest values of yield strength and ultimate tensile strength on the example of deformation of single crystals of alloy JS6F are typical of orientation <111>, demonstrating a negligible area of yielding at tension.
Each entry in the book indicates standards and specifications that provide the designation, name, or grade of a specific alloy; lists the grade name or a numeric or alphanumeric symbol for the a particular alloy, strength, or form of the metal; gives chemical composition in conventional weight percent; and provides information on properties such as ultimate tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, hardness, and room temperature values.
