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.

The strength profile for AlSiMg alloys with magnesium concentrations have shown a steep increase in yield strength through the precipitation hardening, a subsequent plateau with the final peak value, followed by a slow decrease in yield strength due to over aging, according to measured and simulated results (Fig.

This is particularly the case when there are issues related to safety, as the materials generally have an intrinsically high yield strength.
Tensile yield strength and ultimate elongation were used to assess the bond strength.
Increasing the hold pressure increased the yield strengths for all three types of specimens.

Three parameters were evaluated from each stress-strain curve: elastic modulus (E), yield strength ([[sigma].
Pre-conditioning and late-inoculation with 75% FeSi containing Bi and rare earths significantly decrease tensile and yield strengths in 3-mm sections as a result of higher nodule count (with a corresponding higher ferrite content) whereas in the 12-mm section, the strength is not affected much.
