High-temperature deep rolling was developed from conventional deep rolling (deep rolling at room temperature) and performed on various metallic materials, such as austenitic stainless steel AISI 304, normalized plain carbon steel SAE 1045, aluminium alloys (non-precipitation-hardenable AA5083 and precipitation-hardenable AA6110). The fatigue performance of high-temperature deep-rolled specimens was investigated using stress-controlled fatigue tests and compared with the conventionally deep-rolled condition. It was found that high-temperature deep rolling effectively enhances the fatigue performance of steels. However, for aluminium alloys, the beneficial effects of high-temperature deep rolling are not pronounced due to the different strengthening mechanisms in aluminium alloys.
