How To Calculate

Example 1:

Input

Value

Safety Factor

1.5

Design Stress (Pa)

200000

Pressure Unit

Pascal (Pa)

Yield Strength (Pa)

300000

In this example, with a safety factor of 1.5, design stress of 200,000 Pa, and Pascal as the pressure unit, the yield strength is calculated as 300,000 Pa.

Example 2:

Input

Value

Total Design Load (N)

5000

Cross-sectional Area (m²)

0.05

Advanced Yield Strength (Pa)

100000

For an applied load of 5000 N and a cross-sectional area of 0.05 m², the yield strength is 100,000 Pa.

The Yield Strength Calculator simplifies complex calculations, allowing for quick assessments of material strength based on specific safety and design factors.
