Summary

The aim of the present contribution is to report experimental results on cyclic stress-strain response and fatigue life of 316L stainless steel in surface nitrided and as-received conditions. Surface damage observation, fracture surface examination and sectioning technique can help to elucidate differences in fatigue behavior of both materials.
