In rheology, the flow limit is the mechanical stress above which a material begins to flow . Loads above the yield point cause permanent plastic deformation . This process is irreversible .

A material remains elastic when cold below the yield point . That is, it will return to its original shape when the load is removed. The deformation is reversible .

After the yield point has been exceeded, the material can deform under a load that increases or even decreases less rapidly. The exact course is described by the flow curve and, for example in the case of tensile stress , the stress-strain diagram . In the case of many materials (e.g. metals ) the so-called expansion hardening occurs with further deformation . The reason is often an increase in the density of dislocations in the crystal structure of the material.
