The fretting fatigue performance of Ti-6Al-4V after
isothermal exposure was explored in test
coupons in low plasticity burnished (LPB), shot
peened (SP) and electropolished (ELP) baseline
conditions. The thermal stability of the
compressive residual stress fields produced by
SP and LPB was investigated. In the current
study, fretting fatigue data and fractography are
presented along with in-depth residual stress
profiles, both before and after the isothermal
exposure. Surface roughness data for each of the
three surface conditions are reported.
