Generalized Application of Neuber's Rule
An analysis is presented concerning problems of correct application of approximation formulas such as Neuber's rule for the case of inelastic net section behavior of notched members. The rules developed allow a generalized consideration of elastic-plastic net section behavior for any type of loading and notch geometry. The analysis is illustrated by discussion of experimental and calculated load-notch strain curves of different specimens.
