Torque + Angle is a method achieve a pull on the bolt that is more precise than torque alone.
A Torque + Angle procedure by itself does NOT indicate a torque to yield condition.

In a torque to yeald, when tightening a bolt you get to a point where tightening it down more does not require more torque because the bolt is streaching.
This is not the case. The point of torque to yield is to achieve the maximum possible clamp load from a bolt. The bolt ends up permanently deformed, but the torque to get to that point is always increasing.
