Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Extension (by a factor of 3.5) of fatigue life of steels of different structural classes has been established. The structural change, phase composition, defect substructure of the material surface layer at different scale levels (from micro to nano), and the suppression of processes contributing to the formation of zones of potential submicrocrack location have been analyzed by means of transmission electron microscopy.
