How much can the beam take before it breaks? We use the Yield Strength as the
limit of the beam’s strength based on the stresses that the beam sees. Both the
material and beam section contribute to the strength.

Note:In metals, the material will often bend under load but will return to its original
shape when the load is removed. The yield strength is the point where the material
bends and stays bent after the load is removed. This is called a Plastic
Deformation.
