    Factor of Safety? Yield or Ultimate

    James Pare

      Hello

      I am trying to establish some factor of safety standards for industrial carts we produce for our tooling

      Does anyone know what the inustirial standard for factor of safety is?

      Also, should I be using yield (deformation) or ultimate (failure) as my condition?
