The two-dimensional photoelastic investigation has been made on the effect of plate width, pitch, and depth of notch on the stress-concentration factor in a finite plate, which is for the single and multiple notches of any depth, under pure bending. Thus the stress-concentration factor, the effective notch depth, and the reduction of stress concentration caused by multiple notches were clarified.
