Surface integrity is the nature of the surface condition of a workpiece after manufacturing processes. It can also be defined as the "unimpaired or enhanced surface condition of a component or specimen which influences its performance".
The first sentence defines it as the condition whatever that is. The second sentence defines it as good condition. Pick one. —Tamfang (talk) 20:47, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Unfortunately, that's pretty much what Degarmo says, but I agree with you, on closer inspection, that they are in conflict, so I removed the later, as it was listed as a more specific definition. Wizard191 (talk) 00:41, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

I am the user of BS EN 13261:2009 "RAILWAY APPLICATIONS --- Wheelsets and bogies -- Axles -- Product requirement". According to item 3.7.2 "Surface integrity" and Table 8 "longitudinal defect limit" in this standard, it gives a detail and operable acceptance criteria for surface integrity inspection. My question is does these defects limited only on haircrack? or could be used to any kind of surface defect(for example, crack with certain depth)? If the later is corrective, my worry is that if the defect is accepted per this criteria (for example, longitudinal defect, length 5mm , on axle journal area), but this defect could not be checked out by UT internal defect inspection (since in the UT blind layer), is it possible? Could we accept this situation? Thanks for your asistance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by William zheng (talk • contribs) 05:36, 6 March 2011 (UTC)
