Surface hardening effectively increases the low-cycle fatigue strength of titanium alloy VT3-1 particularly with stress concentrators.
Hardening a notch by burnishing substantially increases the fatigue limit under load to a value corresponding to the yield strength of the material and may completely eliminate the unfavorable effect of the concentrator.
Hardening of the area near the stress concentrator without hardening the notch itself has comparatively little effect.
