If I have used a linear material model, and I want to get a rough idea of how much of the model has exceeded the Yield Strength of the material, I will type the yield strength value into the Stress legend on the number that separates the red square from the adjacent color below it. Then the volume (3D) or area (2D) that is colored red is an indication of how much yielding is expected.
