A study has been made on how heat treatment affects surface-layer formation and structure in unlubricated friction on steel 45 for high-tensile austenitic 36NKh-TYu alloy. The substructure formed in the friction zone has multiple continuous and discrete orientation deviations and is independent of the initial alloy state. However, the aged alloy differs from the quenched in that there is turbulence in the surface-layer structure.
