The results of investigation of characteristic features of modification of the structural-phase state of the surface layer of a TiC–(Ni–Cr) cermet composite under irradiation by a pulsed electron beam in the discharge plasma of inert gases with different atomic masses and ionization energies are presented. The effect of modification of the structural-phase state of the composite surface layer on its strength is analyzed under conditions of threepoint bending.
