ABSTRACT The outstanding benefits of this classical mechanical surface treatment method for surface optimization are outlined in this paper. After a brief history of the deep rolling process, the current developments are addressed in detail. Among others, main topics of this contribution are typical applications of deep rolling for fatigue strength enhancement of various materials, typical features and advantages of deep rolling versus shot peening and other surface treatments and the mechanical and metallurgical effects of deep rolling. Special focus is put on future developments such as deep rolling at elevated temperatures and deep rolling of complicated geometries such as turbine blades and discs.
