Yield Strength

Written by Matt Milbury on . Posted in Pipe

Yield strength, also known as yield stress, is the minimum stress that leads to permanent deformation of the material.

Yield Strength formula

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


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

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

\(\large{ F }\) = force

Solve for:

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

\(\large{ F = \sigma A }\)
