Investigations were made on the pulsating bending fatigue properties, residual stress and fracture topography of prestressed shot-peened leaf springs made of steel grade 55SiMnVB. The fatigue fracture topographies were observed with SEM and TEM. It has been found that there is a difference between the fracture topography of specimens with or without compressive residual stress. An index is proposed to evaluate the effect of compressive residual stress.
