The brittleness of polystyrene PS and the toughness but notch sensitivity of polycarbonate PC have been studied by the detailed finite element analyses of the stress and strain fields in a notched tensile bar with a minor defect. The defect represented a flaw or imperfection, generated during the test specimen production. The large-strain mechanical responses of both materials were approximated by an accurate elasto-viscoplastic constitutive model with appropriate material parameters. It was assumed that failure occurs instantaneously once the dilative stress exceeds a certain critical craze-initiation stress.
