In this paper, we have proposed an evaluation method for the initiation conditions of heat crack under thermal shock using the tensile test of a notched specimen. In some materials, such as hot rolling rolls and dies for aluminum die-casting, there is a problem of heat crack initiation, and the evaluation of heat crack resistance using test pieces was difficult until now. The thermal stress and stress gradient that occurred in such material were analyzed by the finite element method (FEM). The maximum stress when tensile stress was applied to the material with a notch was compared to the stress gradient of the thermal stress. As a result, the quantitative evaluation during the initiation conditions of a heat crack for materials became possible.
