Stress Concentration! (or stress riser) That’s the name of the thing that interests me in stress distribution. I was looking for it under the “pure sciences” but it’s an “applied science”. Not knowing the name of a thing can make it hard to find it when it’s not classified in a way you expect to find it. Example is looking for an item in the supermarket that ends up being in a place you wouldn’t have put it. Such is the case here, although I understand their logic better than I used to. (applied physics, physics and philosophy of physics are distinct areas which sometimes makes it difficult to get from one to another).

wait – no it’s not…. no… this is about notches causing fracture. fascinating but not it yet. huh.
 ok i can probably treat a solid cube as a set of trusses. Ok, I think I have my direction. No wonder I couldn’t find it.
i mean its part of structural analysis…
finite element analysis.. but focusing on trusses might make it simpler.
