This paper analyzes the notch effect and presents a methodology, based on failure assessment diagrams and the notch analysis approaches based on the theory of critical distances, for the structural integrity assessment of notched components, which allows more accurate structural analyses to be made. The methodology is applied to a set of tests performed on PMMA single edge notched bending (senb) specimens, providing better results than those obtained when the analysis is performed considering that notches behave as cracks.
