|The stress at which a material exhibits a specified limiting deviation from |
the proportionality of stress to strain during tensile testing.
|The stress in a material at which there occurs a marked increase in strain |
without an increase in stress during tensile testing.
|The ratio of the quantity of finished shipments to the total raw steel |
produced, adjusted for changes in inventory and any slabs that are
purchased from outside. Yield has significantly improved during the past
decade, primarily as the result of the industry's conversion to continually
cast steel, whose yield is superior to that of traditional ingot teeming.
|Yield Point Elongation|
|The amount of strain that is required to complete the yielding process. It |
is measured from the onset of yielding to the beginning of strain
|The stress level of highly ductile materials, such as structural steels, at |
which large strains take place without further increase in stress.
