Abstract:

By considering the nature of the surface layer formed as a result of plastic deformation, substantial improvements may be made in the fatigue, creep, and stress-corrosion cracking resistance. When the surface layer stress is decreased, the fatigue and stress-corrosion cracking resistance is increased. When its relaxation rate is decreased, the creep rate is also decreased.
