Behaviour of the system after reaching max ulimit

What would happen if I reach the max. ulimit for opening new files?

Let's assume, I have max. files limit defined as 50 in ulimit, and consider my ulimit is reached.

What will happen at the time when I try to launch 51th file? 

Will it simply throw erros? 

I tried exprerimenting this scenario, but without successfully.
