A hard material (mill scale) was assumed to have been impressed during drawing of the wire and was broken out during peening, leaving the depressions with sharp-bottomed corners. Spring was concluded to have failed due to a surface defect. Scale (corrosion) Wire...

A decarburized surface layer and subsurface oxidation in the vicinity of pitting were revealed by metallographic examination of the 2% nital etched gear tooth sample. It was concluded that pitting had resulted as a combination of both the defects...
