|English term or phrase: yield strength|
|Context: Traffic railing design forces|
"The yield strength of anchor bolts for steel railing shall be fully developed by bond, hooks, attachment yo embedded plates or any combination thereof.
Reinforcing steel for concrete barriers shall have sufficient embedment length to develop the yield strength."
Could I translate it as "adherencia"?
I´ll appreciate any ideas, specially from civil engineers. Thanks a lot!
|Spanish translation:Límite elástico|
YIELD STRENGTH: The point at which a material, under load, begins to plastically deform.
When stress exceeds the yield strength, plastic deformation begins to
occur via deformation. When stress is below the yield strength, elastic
deformation occurs and the material returns to its previous shape
if the stress is removed.
In Spanish this limit is called "límite elástico".

|Muchas gracias!! Quisiera saber también si "límite elástico" se utiliza en Argentina. :)|
En cuanto a la respuesta "resistencia a la tracción", tengo entendido que eso se traduce como "tensile strength"
Gracias a todos

límite elástico, límite aparente de elasticidad,
resistencia a punto cedente.
Todas estas definiciones son las que da Javier Collazo, and it makes sense, given your context.
