Fatigue Strength Related to Chrome Plating
How is chrome thickness directly related to the fatigue strength of steel? I know that it is reduced with increased thickness, but can the amount of fatigue be related to a specific chrome thickness number? I'm referring to standard chrome plating baths only, and I'm not taking in to consideration methods that affect fatigue strength, such as, baking or shot peening. I'm also not considering alloy parameters.
