i'd like to know if it's possible what the meaning of yield function in elastoplasticity.
Also what is the concept of inelastic potential
i'll be thankful if someone can help me

With regard to inelastic potential, try

an inelastic potential function based on the Drucker-Prager yield
criterion (Ref. 10) . . .

Nice sources, in short the ingredients of typical plasticity models :

yield function : say [itex] f(\sigma, q_{\alpha}) [/itex] where [itex]\sigma[/itex] is the true stress tensor and [itex]q_{\alpha}[/itex] are a set of internal variables - control onset and progress of plasticity

flow rule, flow potential - govern plastic flow, the increments of plastic strain, for example in incremental plasticity [itex]\dot{\epsilon_{p}}=\dot{\lambda}\frac{\partial\psi}{\partial\sigma}[/itex], where [itex]\psi[/itex] is the flow potential.

evolution equations - govern the behavior of internal variables, like strain hardening etc.

... typically metal plasticity models are associative, i.e. the flow potential and yield function are identical.
