Yield Strength

yield strength 1Yield strength, abbreviated as \(\sigma\) (Greek symbol sigma), also called yield stress, is the minimum stress that leads to permanent deformation of the material.


Yield Strength formula

\(\large{ \sigma = \frac{F}{A_c} }\)   


\(\large{ \sigma }\)  (Greek symbol sigma) = yield strength

\(\large{ A_c }\) = area cross-section

\(\large{ F }\) = force
