This paper gives a brief review of the information which currently can be obtained from notched tensile tests, followed by a discussion of the fact that the applicability of this information to manufacturing problems is so limited as to be almost useless for many engineering purposes. Finally, there is a consideration of what kind of information is necessary for rational design, and how such information might be obtained.
