"Yield Stress" could be a term that applies to our daily lives. When under pressure, if the stress is too great, you start to "change" in a figurative sense. In the world of science and engineering, fluids and semi-solid materials that are subjected to a strong enough force will start to move. Basically, they "change" from their original shape and move in response to the applied force, remaining in motion as long as the force is great enough.

Reverse osmosis systems play a central part in water treatment. In industrial applications, for example, reverse osmosis is used for purifying process water, producing drinking water, and desalinizing seawater, or for producing ultra-pure or pharmaceutical water. In addition to these processes, which aim at reducing the concentration of the substances dissolved in the water, the beverage industry also uses reverse osmosis systems for increasing concentrations, e.g. in the manufacture of fruit juice concentrates or for concentrating the must in wine production.
