Here we present unique results for copper to demonstrate that a thin superficial layer of graded surface nanostructure over a coarse-grained core suppresses strain localization and surface roughening, thereby imparting unprecedented resistance to both low-cycle and high-cycle fatigue without compromising ductility. Progressive homogenization of the surface-graded copper is shown to be superior in fatigue properties compared to that of any of its homogeneous counterparts with micro-, submicro- or nano-grained structures. Since the findings here for enhancing resistance to fatigue are broadly applicable to a wide spectrum of engineering metals and alloys, the present results offer unique pathways to mitigate fatigue damage using a broad variety of processing routes, geometric design considerations, and structural parameters in many practical applications.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/150325||ISSN:||1359-6454||DOI:||10.1016/j.actamat.2018.12.018||Rights:||© 2018 Acta Materialia Inc.
