A correlation is demonstrated between the low-cycle fatigue properties and the scuff resisting properties of 4340 steel. Low cycle fatigue properties were estimated from measured tensile properties for specimens with a wide range of hardness. Scuff resistance was measured in sliding tests using white mineral oil as the lubricant.
