This paper presents a generalized two-step endochronic approach for estimating notch stresses and strains based on elastic stress solutions. In the first stress-controlled step, notch root strains are calculated from elastic stresses using a conventional uniaxial method, such as Glinka’s energy density method and Neuber’s rule. In the second strain-controlled step notch root stresses corresponding to the estimated local strains are calculated from the given material properties. Both stress-controlled and strain-controlled algorithms based on endochronic plasticity theory are presented herein. The proposed method is used to calculate multiaxial strains under monotonie and nonproportional loads. Various geometric constraints (plane stress, plane strain, and intermediate level) are also examined. The results are compared with experimental measurements by other researchers and with predictions from other models.
