    Yield Strenght the same? How to read simulation results properly

    Wessel Den Helder



      Its my 1st post here, hi . I am a productdeveloping student and i've a problem with reading the simulation results.

      I am using structural steel (DIN) S235, S275, S355 and so on, to optimalize a metal structure.

      I am focussing on the given yield strength of the materials to check if its going to widthstand the force.


      After some studies i mentioned that the yield strenght of all those materials are the same, 275MPa.

      S235 should be 235 MPa right? and S275 > 275MPa.


      I am confused now and do not know if my results are still trustworthy.


      Only the tensile strength changes with the materials.


      Is this normal or should I chance material settings?

      Can I still use the results?


      Thanks in advance.
