Title:Significance of residual stress in fatigue
Author(s):Morrow, JoDean; Sinclair, G.M.
Abstract:A literature survey was conducted to determine the possible influence of residual stress on fatigue. Representative data have been examined for the following methods of inducing residual stress, prestraining, straightening, surface cold working, thermal stresses, metal plating, case hardening, and maching. It was found that for members with a soft surface layer residual stress generally had little influence, while for members with a hard surface layer residual tension on the surface was detrimental and residual compression was beneficial. These general trends are interpreted in terms of the known behavior and properties of the metals considered.
