Engineering and Construction surface mechanical attrition treatment (SMAT) of steel: Nano microstructure on surface of bulk sample
You should cover the SMAT process, effect of SMAT on the structure and properties, and some applications. Also, SMAT influence on the diffusion process. Please support the paper with equations and figures.

Hello writer, I have send you before a PDF file that has some comments but it seems you didn’t do all of them. Please go back to it and make sure you did all of it. Beside, i have the following feedback that need to be addressed: 1- Throughout this paper, please remove the references used and replace them with the “EndNote” references you have made. You only need to insert citation for each reference. Also, make sure to include the full citation information with no errors. 2- In the abstract, what do you mean by upgrading the physical properties? This is not clear. 3- Don’t use “um” as the unit size but instead refer to “µm” 4- The heading “Effects on general material thickness” is misleading. What thickness are you referring to here? 5- “2.0. Mechanical twinning” this heading seem to be not related to what proceed it. 6- You have to give the reference for each figure or table you include. 7- The formulas need to be written through the MS equations function and NOT to be copied and paste. 8- You mention “Figure 6 below shows a tensile strain curve for a SMAT 316 stainless steel sample in comparison with the untreated original sample with same geometry”. Please comments on the results and why does this happen? 9- In the fatigue subsection “Results indicated the ability to bear loads by the SMAT treated low carbon steel is improves as compared to the untreated sample”. Please correct/ modify as it seem there is a grammar problem here. 10- You provide three figures on corrosion. Please remove one or two of them, there is no need for all of them. As well, please give further comments and not only presenting the data. 11- You mention “Whenever a grain size is reduced by 10nm, the measured amount of triple junctions can be as high as few volume percents” please cite it. 12- For the derivations in page 19-20, please write the final equation using the MS word formula and cite it. Also mention for further information on the derivation of the formula can be seen through other reference and cite it. Also, make sure to define each term. 13- Include keywords in the abstract part. I have made a five days extension and let me know if you need more. Thanks and looking forwards for your feedback.
