A method of dynamic analysis of a strain-stress state in parts of an internal-combustion engine with stress concentrators has been worked out. The method gives an opportunity to take into account the rise of the fatigue resistance due to strengthening treatment, to choose the optimal mode of surface hardening and its regimes, to develop the technological and designing activities aimed at improving the fatigue resistance characteristics of the parts. The method has been tested drawing on the example of rolled cylindrical specimens, the results have been confirmed by experimental data. Failure zones of the crankshaft as the most strained part of a combustion engine in the operation process have been investigated and determined on the basis of metallographic analysis and reclamation data carried out at the Open Joint-Stock Company “Auto diesel” (YMZ). Finite-element models of the engine YMZ-238 crankshaft have been constructed using the ANSYS/LS-DYNA software complex. The models make it possible to evaluate the influence of hardening on the fatigue resistance under operating loads and boundary conditions corresponding to the real working regimes of the YMZ-238 engine and the area of initiation of fatigue macro cracks causing the destruction.  On the basis of the results obtained in solving a production problem using the proposed method and confirmed by the reclamation analysis designing and technological activities aimed at ensuring the required level of crankshaft fatigue resistance due to the optimization of hardening treatment regimes have been proposed
