This paper predicts the effects of notch root radius on the ductile fracture behavior of the structure through evaluation based on fracture mechanics concept. To understand the effects of notch radii on structure, FE analysis of J-integral for plane strain deformation fields with various size of notches were predicted. The fracture toughness of the specimens with various notch radii were determined by stress modified fracture strain damage model FE simulation that was established based on notched bar tensile test data. The simulated results were validated by comparison with the experiment data. Findings show that the value of apparent fracture toughness increases with the increase in the notch radii. Therefore, indicates the increase in the resistance to the crack propagation. Similar trend can be shown for both C(T) and M(T) specimen. Thus, shows that the proposed method can be used to obtain effects of various notch radii.
