  • mechanically surface treated materials;
  • high temperature fatigue


It is the objective of this study to examine the role of mechanical surface treatments on the high temperature fatigue behavior of several metallic engineering materials. Moreover, it is the aim of this work to clarify what are the critical temperature “thresholds” at which near-surface microstructures and residual stresses become unstable and whether this can explain the observed fatigue behavior.
