The fatigue strength of Q345B steel plate with a central hole after shot blasting is studied herein. The improvement of fatigue strength related to the failure behavior is highlighted with due analysis of fatigue cracks initiation at the defect below the condensed surface induced by shot blasting. The effect of stress concentration is shown to be non-ignorable in the fatigue strength analysis. Codified fatigue categories in accordance with EN 1993-1-9 are used in drawing a comparison of studied fatigue behavior. Finally, an analytical model based on a modified reference model is proposed for the evaluation of the test fatigue strength results. It is demonstrated that the predicted results agree well with test data, since the stress ratio and the size of the defect as well as the stress concentration are appropriately considered.
