Bing·ham plas·tic

(bing'ăm),
a material that, in the idealized case, does not flow until a critical stress (yield stress) is exceeded, and then flows at a rate proportional to the excess of stress over the yield stress; real materials probably only approach this ideal model.

Bingham model - a model representing the flow behavior of a Bingham plastic, in the idealized case.
Bingham plastic - a material that, in the idealized case, does not flow until a critical stress (yield stress) is exceeded, and then flows at a rate proportional to the excess of stress over the yield stress.
