Flow stress

Flow stress

Flow stress is defined as the instantaneous value of stress required to continue deforming the material - to keep the metal flowing. It is the Yield Strength of the metal as a function of strain, which can be expressed: [1]

Yf = Ke^n

Yf = Flow stress, MPaK = Strength Coefficient, MPan = Strain hardening exponent

Hence, Flow stress can also be defined as the stress required to sustain plastic deformation at a particular strain.

The flow stress is a function of plastic strain.
