The Difference Between Yield Strength and Tensile Strength

Tensile strength quantifies the force needed to pull a rope, wire, or a structural beam to the stage where it breaks. Specifically, the tensile strength of a material is the maximum amount of tensile stress that it can withhold before failure occurs. Yield strength, or the yield point, is described in engineering science as the point of stress at which any material starts to deform plastically.

Yield strength is one of the types of tensile strength. Yield strength is defined as the yield stress, which is actually the stress level at which a permanent deformation of 0.2% of the original dimension of the material happens, and is defined as the stress level at which a material can withstand the stress before it is deformed permanently.

Before reaching the yield point, the material will distort elastically, and returns to its original shape when there is a repression and the stress is removed. Beyond the yield point, there would definitely be some sort of permanent deformation in the material which cannot be reversed.

In structural engineering, yield is defined as the everlasting plastic deformation of a structural member when stress is applied. Tensile strength is based around a lot of factors, which includes Elastic Limit – which is defined as the lowest stress at which permanent deformation is able to be measured.

This needs a complex iterative load-unload procedure, and is gravely dependent on the precision of the apparatus and the ability of the machinist. It is also based around Proportional Limit, the point at which the stress-strain curve becomes non-linear. In most metallic materials, the elastic limit and proportional limit are fundamentally identical.


Tensile strength is the degree used to measure the force which is required to pull something, for instance, a wire, a structural beam or maybe a rope to the stage where it breaks. On the other hand, yield strength, or the yield point, is the point of stress at which any material will deform plastically.
