  Ultralow yield strength steel - Patent 5385617
An ultralow yield strength steel consisting of: from 0.01 to 0.25 wt % of hexagonal boron nitride particles having an average diameter of from 1 to 30.mu.m; and the balance consisting of iron and unavoidable impurities.
The present inventors have found that the yield strength of a steel is lowered by dispersion of hexagonal boron nitride particles in the steel and invented the steels defined in (1), (2) and (3) as follows.
This stress concentration generates a raised stress greater than the yield strength of the matrix iron, so that the iron matrix subjected to this raised local stress begins to deform in a shear manner even when the applied nominal stress is smaller than the yield strength of the matrix iron.

 Ultimate Tensile Strength
The yield strength is defined as the stress at which a predetermined amount of permanent deformation occurs.
To find yield strength, the predetermined amount of permanent strain is set along the strain axis of the graph, to the right of the origin (zero).
When yield strength is reported, the amount of offset used in the determination should be stated.

 SED Method of Measuring Yield Strength of Adhesives and Other Materials
In the first set, the yield strength of multiple specimens made of the adhesive FM 300K was determined in the dry/cold, moderate, and humid/hot environments; the strain rates were 10/s, 10/s, and 10/s.
To ensure the safety of bonded structures, the yield strength of adhesives should be determined with the SED method, which is based on the fundamental principles of mechanics, instead of on an arbitrary estimate of strain offset.
To ensure that the yield strength of adhesives for bonding load-bearing structures is not systematically overestimated, the authors recommend using the SED method in lieu of the 0.2 % offset method.

  Liquid metal Technology
One of the direct results of the unique atomic structure of Liquidmetal alloys is very high yield strength, which approaches the theoretical limit and far exceeds the strength currently available in crystalline metals and alloys.
For example, yield strength of over 250 ksi has been achieved in Zr-base and Ti-base Liquidmetal alloys (VIT-001 series).
Another unique property of Liquidmetal alloys is the superior elastic limit; i.e., the ability to retain its original shape (memory) after undergoing very high loads and stress.

  Engineering Stress-strain Curve
However, because of the long practice of using the tensile strength to determine the strength of materials, it has become a very familiar property, and as such it is a very useful identification of a material in the same sense that the chemical composition serves to identify a metal or alloy.
The usual definition of this property is the offset yield strength determined by the stress corresponding to the intersection of the stress-strain curve and a line parallel to the elastic part of the curve offset by a specified strain (Fig.
The yield strength obtained by an offset method is commonly used for design and specification purposes because it avoids the practical difficulties of measuring the elastic limit or proportional limit.

 Yield (engineering) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yield strength, or the yield point, is defined in engineering and materials science as the stress at which a material begins to plastically deform.
Offset Yield Point (proof stress) - Due to the lack of a clear border between the elastic and plastic regions in many materials, the yield point is often defined as the stress at some arbitrary plastic strain (typically 0.2% [1]).
A yield criterion, often expressed as yield surface, is an hypothesis concerning the limit of elasticity under any combination of stresses.

 Tensile strength - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Yield strength is the stress which will cause a permanent deformation of 0.2% of the original dimension.
The yield strength is typically defined by the "0.2% offset strain".
In brittle materials such as rock, concrete, cast iron, or soil, tensile strength is negligible compared to the compressive strength and it is assumed zero for many engineering applications.
