Definition of yield strength in English:

yield strength


  • (in materials that do not exhibit a well-defined yield point) the stress at which a specific amount of plastic deformation is produced, usually taken as 0.2 percent of the unstressed length.

    ‘The yield strength is the stress required to produce a small-specified amount of plastic deformation.’
    • ‘It's yield strength is less than the force needed to subduct it.’
    • ‘High-strength structural carbon steels have yield strengths greater than 275 MPa and are available in various product forms.’
    • ‘Medium-carbon ultrahigh-strength steels are structural steels with yield strengths that can exceed 1380 MPa.’
    • ‘The main alloy ingredients offer high yield strengths.’
