Influence of the Shot Peening Process on the Fatigue Behaviour of Duplex Stainless Steel Reinforcing Bars
The influence of shot peening on the fatigue properties of duplex stainless steel reinforcing bars manufactured using both hot and cold rolled processes was studied. From determination of the S-N curves, the experimental results show that shot peening improves the fatigue behaviour of the re-bars, but that the improvement is much greater for the hot rolled bars. A more severe peening action capable of promoting greater plastic deformation of the bar surface needs to be used to improve the fatigue resistance of cold rolled corrugated bars.
