Yield strength (kN) was the point on the force/displacement curve where plastic deformation occurred.
Titanium 6-6-2 was chose for the landing gear assembly because it has the yield strength to meet conventional aircraft load requirements (175,000 to 210,000 psi in the heat-treated condition) and also maintains the extreme low weight required in rotor-craft design (density 0.
