yield stress

n
(General Physics) the stress level at which a metal or other material ceases to behave elastically. The stress divided by the strain is no longer constant. The point at which this occurs is known as the yield point. Compare proof stress

The pressure sensitivity [micro] can be obtained from the tensile and compressive yield stresses or flow stresses as
The software controls the one-minute tests and computes static and dynamic yield stresses, plus plastic viscosity in fundamental units.
Additional capabilities include the measuring of intrinsic viscosities, zero shear rate viscosities, yield stresses, particle settling rates and Newtonian fluid densities.
In addition, coatings with yield stresses (which includes most architectural paints) are sag-resistant.
Figure 3 presents a change in yield stresses depending on the composition of cement paste containing different cement modifiers (weight percentage).
Hill's anisotropic coefficients were determined for the case of pre-extruded magnesium AZ80 alloy on the basis of previous experimentally obtained main yield and shear yield stresses (mechanical properties) for general use in a form of flow curves [9] and on the basis of a study for the determination of anisotropic material flow under a wide range of different process parameters [5].
By using lubricator with the lowest coefficient of friction ([mu] = 0, 05) the highest tensile and yield stresses were measured.
Measured tensile strength was compared with published data of transverse shrinkage, compression yield, and relaxed compression yield stresses.
Its breaking and yield stresses were 28 and 32, respectively, with an elongational capability of 672% (ref.
Increasing the yield stress tends to make the velocities vanish in the bath, which is expected because the bath is a low-stress region, which is called the unyielded region, and is very sensitive to the level of yield stresses.
c] = const, but when yield stresses are reached some polynomial approximations are determined and integrated with respect to [xi] (Fig.
