To quantitatively investigate the cause of the changes in arithmetic mean roughness Ra and arithmetic mean waviness Wa of austenitic stainless steel under low-cycle fatigue loading, precise observation focusing on persistent slip bands (PSBs) and crystal grain deformations was conducted on SUS316NG. During the fatigue tests, the specimen’s surface topography was regularly measured using a laser microscope. The surface topographies were analysed by frequency analysis to separate the surface relief due to PSBs from that due to grain deformation. The height caused by PSBs and that by grain deformation were measured respectively. As a result, both of the heights rose with the increase of usage factor (UF). The amount of increase in the heights with respect to UF increased with strain range. The trend of development of both heights was similar with the trend of Ra and Wa. A comparison between Ra and the height caused by PSBs showed that these values strongly correlated with each other. A comparison between Wa and the height caused by grain deformation also showed that these values strongly correlated with each other. Consequently, the surface texture parameters Ra and Wa represent the changes in the heights of surface reliefs due to PSBs and grain deformation.
