Although additive manufactured (AM) metals are attractive materials, the fatigue strength of AM metals are considerably weak comparing with that of wrought materials. The mechanical surface treatment such as shot peening can improve the fatigue strength of metallic materials. Recently, a novel mechanical surface treatment using solid-liquid-gas interfacial phenomena induced by pulse laser has been developed. In the present paper, in order to demonstrate the improvement of fatigue strength of AM metals by solid-liquid-gas interfacial phenomena, titanium alloy Ti6Al4V manufactured by electron beam melting EBM was treated by submerged pulse laser and tested by a plane bending fatigue test. The key factors were investigated by evaluating the relation between the fatigue properties and mechanical properties of the surface treated by submerged laser peening, cavitation peening and shot peening.
