Effect of surface cold hardening on the fatigue resistance of 18KhNVA steel at high temperatures

  • 14 Accesses


Surface cold hardening increases the fatigue resistance of 18KhNVA steel with a martensitic structure (quenched and tempered at low temperature) at room temperature and at high temperatures. Cold hardening is particularly effective when the samples have stress concentrators (notches or pressed collars).
