Production Section


An original method of fatigue testing through application of friction is offered. The changes in specimen bending are recorded during the course of the tests. By means of this methodology we have derived data for a 45-steel contact pair. Analysis of the results indicates the existence of contact stresses optimum for fatigue, at which the fatigue endurance is at its maximum. Unique features in the deformation of the material through resort to this method are discussed.
