Tensile tests of a high strength steel were made on specimens having a circumferential notch. The values of the notch root radius and notch depth were varied over a wide range. All the data were examined based on the concept of linear notch mechanics. For the present material, it is considered that the load for the static tensile fracture of structures can be estimated approximately by linear notch mechanics.
