Fracture and Fatigue Emanating from Stress Concentrators

Fracture and Fatigue Emanating from Stress Concentrators A vast majority of failures emanate from stress concentrators such as geometrical discontinuities. The role of stress concentration was first highlighted by Inglis (1912) who gives a stress concentration factor for an elliptical defect, and later by Neuber (1936). With the progress in computing, it is now possible… Continue reading Fracture and Fatigue Emanating from Stress Concentrators
