The decrease in fatigue strength of steel parts in contact zones (fits) is the combined result of stress concentration, electro-erosive surface deterioration, mechanical surface wear and fretting corrosion. The relative importance of the various factors may vary, depending on circumstances, and is determined by the materials of the coacting parts and the loading conditions.
