The paper continues the theme of Part I and presents a J-based estimation scheme for the single edge notch specimens in bending (SENB) geometry. Finite element calculations were carried out to analyse geometries with shallow cracks (0.02<a/W<0.1) and the full range of the work hardening exponent n = 1 to ?. Based on the relationship between the deformation patterns and the J-strain curves, the scheme was formulated in three parts (Linear Elastic, Elastic-Plastic and Fully Plastic) and an estimation equation was derived for each. The scheme has been shown to provide very accurate predictions of the J-strain relationships for the medium to low work hardening cases of 5<n<30. The accuracy of prediction is within 5%. For the high work hardening cases, the scheme for tension loading presented in Part I can be used to provide conservative estimates.
