Paper Title:
Butt Joining of Dissimilar Sheets by Shot Peening
  Abstract

The butt joining of dissimilar sheets using a shot peening process was investigated. Shot peening is a surface treatment and improves the performance of engineering components. In shot peening, the substrate undergoes a large plastic deformation near its surface due to a hit with many shots. Thus, plastic flow characterized by a shear droop occurs at the edge of the substrate due to shot peening. When the dissimilar sheets with the edge of the notch geometry are connected without level difference and shot-peened the connection, the sheets can be joined due to the plastic flow generated by the large plastic deformation during shot peening. In the experiment, a compressed-air-type shot peening machine was employed. The influences of processing conditions on the joining of the dissimilar sheets were examined. The joint strength increased with the kinetic energy of shots. It was found that the present method using shot peening process was effective in joining dissimilar sheets.
