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 composition exhibits a viscosity change that is below a minimum significant-change-threshold ([DELTA][eta]min) and exhibits no measurable yield stress or increase in yield stress value when compared to a substantially identical composition that does not contain the anionic polyelectrolyte, at a weight ratio of anionic polyelectrolyte to cationic polyelectrolyte of from about 0.05 to about 1.2.
4 that the yield stress decreased by 64% within the 5[degrees]C temperature processing window.
Yield stress is considered as the key parameter to assess the rheology for a wide range of suspension.

This type of cover must meet certain technical specifications for optical and thermal properties (transmission of visible and diffused light, thermicity), mechanical properties (elasticity, yield stress and tear resistance) and physical properties (thickness, length, width, weight/[m.sup.2] etc.) that enable them to withstand the environmental conditions to which they are exposed, ensuring the fulfillment of the task for which they have been designed, regardless of geo climatic conditions of the area.
The modulus of elasticity and the compressive yield stress were measured and estimated as 181 GPa and 500 MPa, respectively, based on the data obtained from an extensometer attached to the two plates that were used to compress the specimens.
However, the compressive stress acting on the hardfaced deposit is around 15 MPa only, which is very much less than the yield stress of the deposit.
