What is the plastic deformation?

Elastic/Plastic Deformation. When a sufficient load is applied to a metal or other structural material, it will cause the material to change shape. This change in shape is called deformation.

In this way, what is an example of plastic deformation?

In engineering, the transition from elastic behavior to plastic behavior is called yield. Plastic deformation is observed in most materials, particularly metals, soils, rocks, concrete, foams, bone and skin. For many ductile metals, tensile loading applied to a sample will cause it to behave in an elastic manner.

What is meant by plastic deformation in physics?

A deformation of a body caused by an applied stress which remains after the stress is removed. Elastic Deformation, Elastic Limit, Stress, Yield Strength.
