Effect of REM Finishing on Fatigue Behavior of a Shot Peened Low Alloy Steel
The effect of slight surface REM finishing, that is a chemically accelerated polishing process, in order to reduce surface roughness after shot peening has been studied on different series of specimens shot peened by varied peening parameters. Room temperature rotating bending fatigue tests have been performed on the shot peened series and the series subjected to shot peening and successive REM finishing process. The results represent how REM finishing affects the final fatigue behavior of differently treated specimens in two ways: decreasing surface roughness and removing a thin layer of material with compressive residual stresses.
