### Does yield point of steel depend on thickness?

I have two different plates of different thickness and I need to calculate yield point. Does yield point of steel plate changes with changing of plate thickness?

### How can a thicker pipe withstand more pressure? (In general how does geometry affect stress)

I'm misunderstanding something about how geometry affects yield stress. I think this example best illustrates my confusion: Say you have two pipes with the same internal diameter, same material grade, ...

### What would happen if we applied a stress greater than the yield stress to a rigid-perfectly plastic material?

Say we had a material that was rigid perfectly plastic, with a stress-strain characteristic as shown: Say that we are drawing this material through two dies, something like this: What would happen ...

### Plasticity (stress(strain)) interpolation in Abaqus

The stress-strain data for a plastic deformation is given in table.   I have two questions related to how that table is treated: How is data interpolated? Is it piecewise linear or something else? ...

### Reasonable expected yield strength of A513 steel

I'm looking to build a fish-tank stand for a decently large fish tank (300 gal). I'm looking at building it out of A513 steel because that is easily available locally. However, I am having trouble ...

### Yield properties of plastic material

What is meant by yield of isotropic plastic material? How is yield of Isotropic plastic material different from the term normal yield which is referred as transition from elastic behaviour to plastic....

### Why isn't von Mises criterion valid when compressive and tensile yield stresses differ?

For example here, it is mentioned: The von Mises criterion is NOT a valid yield (failure) criterion for materials with different yield stress values in tension and compression. I can't really ...

### Why is local yielding considered the limiting case in context of buckling in Eurocode?

In Eurocode, when use buckling curves to calculate the maximum load that a compressive member can be subjected to before it risks buckling. Buckling curves are based on the Perry-Robertson formula. I'...

### Problem with cantilever beam and yield strength

Hey, I make a project in which I use a cantilever beam with distributed equal load across the whole beam and I'm using the formulas above to calculate the displacement, moment... My specifications ...

### Buckling vs. Yielding Failure of Columns

As I have been working through examples of construction projects, I've noticed that in nearly every case of a structural column (sample size considers only homogeneous material columns, no composite ...

### Why does the yield strength of steel go up if I reduce the thickness of the specimen?

When I look at the yield of one material then you find more than one yield for different thickness. why the yield changes with changing the thickness. is there an equation to prove this ?

### Difference between 'plastic yielding' , 'plastic yield strength', plastic strength' and 'plastic stress'?

I am going through a literature where these terms are regularly used and I am confused are they different and if yes then what does each term mean? I also want to know relation of plastic strength of ...
