Shot Peening Study

Session Date: Wednesday, October 4th

Session Time: 8:00am – 8:50am

Traditionally, shot peening low cycle fatigue applications does not produce significant benefits. This presentation will look at a fatigue study with multiple iterations of very highly stressed compressions springs. Compression springs fail at less than 15,000 cycles in their un-peened condition. Depending on shot peening parameters and initial residual stress condition, dramatic improvements are possible. Find out more details from this important study.
