Abstract The cantilever-type rotary bending fatigue test was performed at room temperature on high carbon chromium steel. Three kinds of specimens were prepared for comparison, i.e. fine particle bombarded, shot peened and untreated. Each specimen showed a step-wise S-N curve which had a transition stress, transferring the fatigue fracture initiation from surface to subsurface with decreasing the applied stress. The effect of the surface treatment appeared at stress levels above the transition stress of untreated specimen, while it disappeared at stress levels below that stress.
