Abstract: In this paper the residual stress states induced by conventional shot peening (SP) and surface mechanical attrition treatment (SMAT) are compared. The treated part correspond to plates made of a titanium alloy. Different intensities of these two mechanical treatments are first considered: their influence on the surface characteristics (roughness, hardness...) is studied. These experimental data are then used to develop a model for the residual stress profiles with dimensional analysis, Experimental and analytical approaches are then discussed.

Abstract: In this paper, the effects of Surface Mechanical Attrition Treatment on the high-temperature oxidation of AISI 316L austenitic stainless steel are investigated. Samples treated with different conditions were oxidized at 650°C in order to study the effect of this type of nanocrystallisation on the oxidation resistance of the alloy concerned. X-ray diffraction and in-situ Raman spectroscopy were used to identify the oxides formed at the surface. The results indicate the presence of hematite and chromium oxides. Experimental results obtained by Raman spectroscopy were also used to study the stress evolution in Cr2O3 films during isothermal conditions.
