Stress concentration factors for circular notches
Smith, Lawrence Jerome.
MetadataShow full item record
Existing finite element programs PLISOP and PLIMEG are modified and adapted to the successful determination of stress concentration factors for thin elastic bars containing V-shaped round bottom notches and subjected to tensile or bending loads. Accuracy and reliabilty are demonstrated. Comparisons are made with previous analytical and experimental determinations. The effects of finite bar thickness are discussed.
