Dynamics simulation of burnishing of a thin steel layer beneath an indenter applied with a constant force and then moving with a constant velocity was performed by the finite element method in the plane strain approximation. The indenter was modeled by a perfectly rigid body, and the steel was modeled by an elastoplastic body with isotropic hardening according to an experimentally defined law. The regularities of changes in the stressstrain state of the material near the treated surface were studied and mechanisms of the formation of a nanostructured layer were disclosed. The effect of the friction coefficient and the burnishing force on the height of a bulge of edged material was analyzed. The results of studies agree well with experimental data.
