The failure mode known as local failure could occur at structure discontinuities with multiaxial stress conditions. Experiments and analyses of notched bars, which generate multiaxial stress, were conducted. The experiments showed that the tensile strength of a notched bar was stronger than that of a smooth bar. The ratio of the maximum and minimum diameter has become the important factor of this notch strengthening. In addition, the initiation of failure was observed at the inner location from the notch root. According to the analysis results, the Mises-stress became the maximum at the notch root. On the other hand, hydrostatic stress became the maximum at the inner location from the notch root, and this location corresponded to the initiation of fracture. The maximum hydrostatic stress has good correlation with the notch strengthening ratio. These facts reveal that hydrostatic stress must be taken into account for strength evaluation as a dominant factor in addition to the Mises-stress. However, only Mises-stress is considered in the present structural design code of nuclear plants. From above results, the new criterion based on fracture surface, where the coordinate plane consists of hydrostatic stress and Mises-stress, was proposed for local failure. Furthermore, this fracture surface was extended to an isochronous fracture surface in a creep region based on isochronous stress-strain curves.
