This paper describes modeling work on crack nucleation in notched specimen of a martensitic steel undergoing high fatigue stresses. Elastic-plastic finite element analysis on a notched specimen is carried out. A 400 grains aggregation model is created and the local stress distribution in the model is obtained.
