We have made a systematic experimental study of the effect of the thickness of the surface hardened layer in planar samples of 65X13 steel on the geometric parameters of the quasiperiodic mesosubstructures which are formed in the surface layer and the bulk of the sample during its plastic extension. The observed dependence of the dimensions of the fragments of mesosubstructure on the thickness of the surface hardened layer correlates well with theoretical calculations [1, 2] of the mechanical or thermal stress at the interface of two media in an external field.
