Effect of Shape of Notch on Tensile Strength of EN 8 Material

Authors(4) :-Saiyed Javed Hasan, Dr. P. S. Chauhan, Ashutosh Bansal, Adviteeya Gupta

Different types of materials are used in automobile but EN 8 material is mostly used in parts likes shaft, stressed pin, studs, keys, Crankshafts, and automobile axle beams. Literature also revealed that no work has been done on analysis of shape of notch on tensile strength of EN-8 material. Researcher’s belief’s that strength and fatigue life of notched structural components should be evaluated by taking into account the notch effect. Stress concentration due to a notch in a structural component can cause the initiation and growth of a surface crack, and the stress field can be rather different from that found out in the same component without any notch. Fatigue life may significantly be affected by such a geometric discontinuity and this effect of various shape of notch on bar is compared and the best result are been reviewed.
