Definition of yield stress in English:

yield stress


  • The value of stress at a yield point or at the yield strength.

    ‘If the decrease occurs at a constant yield stress then the fracture stress and fracture mode will vary.’
    • ‘It is important to appreciate that equations cannot be used to predict the lower yield stress unless the resultant grain size is known.’
    • ‘Since materials plastically deform as the yield stress is exceeded, a plastic zone will form near the crack tip.’
    • ‘As the material strain-hardens, the yield stress increases.’
    • ‘In these alloys, yield stress have been shown to have only a weak dependence on grain size.’
