1. INTRODUCTION

When performing a linear analysis of a metallic part that is prone to have stress
concentrations (such as those created by holes) the stress peak obtained with the FEM is
unrealistic. The plastic behavior of the metallic material will relieve the stress level in the
surroundings of the concentration source. The problem is to determine if this stress peak
that has been calculated by FEM (or by handcalculations, i.e. Petersons handbook) will
provide a Reserve Factor above one when taking into account the plasticity. In general
remember that this plastic relief will not be applicable to fatigue problems which
commonlyaredealingwithstressesintheelasticrange.

The first approach to the problem would be to run the FEM with a nonlinear solution
(NASTRAN SOL 106) adding the plastic behavior of the material. This solution is reliable
and will provide the real stress level in the nearby of the stress concentration and
additionallywilltakeintoaccounttheeffectontheloadpathduetothestiffnessreduction
intheareaaffectedbytheyieldingofthematerial.

thisapproach.

The third possibility is to calculate the stress concentration factor on the plastic range.
UsuallythestressconcentrationfactorontheelasticrangecanbeeasilyevaluatedbyFEM
or by using the Petersons handbook. This Kt can be extrapolated to the plastic range by
meansofasimpleapproach.

The solution of the expressions above (as the Neuber approach) tends to oscillate if
iterative methods are used. Hence, it is recommended to sweep all the range of
