Prediction of behavior: is it going to collapse?

I run a simulation of an applied load on an aluminum profile insisting on a small recatangula area (pretending to be the tire imprint). The yield resistance is 170 Mpa, strentgh is 200 MPa. Apparently only in a small area this value has been reached (it's not event throurg the thickness), whereas the remaining volume stay below. This body is going to collapse or have to be strenghten? maybe it's a stupid question.
