When a circular notched specimen is subjected to an axial force
along its main length, stresss and strain develop around its minimum
This stress/strain field promote failure of the specimen,
which can occur at any position along the minimum area.
addresses the problem of how the failure site can be predicted using
a Damage Mechanics model, valid for a ductile material.
Consider a circular test specimen, notched at the centre, and sub-
jected to an axial load, as indicated in Figure 1.
Such a load con-...
