The surface strengthening mechanisms of the 15Kh2MFA(II) heat-resistant steel are analyzed after the laser shock-wave treatment in the air and epoxy resin. The regularities are established in the formation of the ordered surface relief of the steel after treatment. The optical and digital analysis of the surface is performed which allows determining the size of irregularities, taking into account the stochastic and cyclic nature of their formation. The effect of treatment of the 15Kh2MFA(II) heat-resistant steel on the regularities of its static failure is established.
