yield point

n
(General Physics) the stress at which an elastic material under increasing stress ceases to behave elastically; under conditions of tensile strength the elongation is no longer proportional to the increase in stress. Also called: yield stress or yield strength

Yield strength, yield strain, ultimate tensile strength, elongation at break, and elastic modulus of each sample were determined using an Instron testing machine (Model 3366, Norwood, MA) at room temperature with a crosshead rate of 20 mm/min per ISO 527.
Then, testing of the tensile strength, yield strength, elongation after breakage, and impact absorbing energy under the different conditions is carried out to compare the mechanical properties of materials.
Furthermore, a maximum allowable yield strength is applied to members subjected to compressive loads to reflect the difficulty of inducing the yield of steel before that of concrete at a design yield strength exceeding 650 MPa.
The addition of Nano-particles in addition to grain refinement of the localized microstructure results in improved mechanical properties such as higher yield strength (YS) and elastic modulus [4]

Tensile tests were performed in 1 mm/min speed by using InstronTM 8503 universal test device and yield strength at 0.2%, and ultimate (max.) tensile strength were determined.
An important application of the characteristic force at general yield ([F.sub.gy]), proposed by Server in 1978 [4], is the estimation of dynamic yield strength ([[sigma].sub.YSD]) based on [F.sub.gy] values.
The main issue with some induction bends is that the mechanical properties in the bending zone, which was heated above Ac3 temperature, fall below the required minimum values (yield strength) or exceed them (hardness).
JFE Steel's JFE-UHP-17CR-110 is a highly corrosion-resistant stainless steel OCTG (Oil Country Tubular Goods) seamless tube with 17% Cr addition and with a higher yield strength of 110 to 130 ksi for tubing pipe and casing pipe for oil and gas wells.
In the cold work direction, the metal exhibits an increase in tensile and yield strength, as well as hardness.
