Calculation of Relaxation of Residual Stress and Change of Yield Strength in Shot Peened Layer
Residual stresses distribution after shot peening and its relaxation during uni-axial loading were investigated experimentally and theoretically on stainless steel of AISI304. An analytical model was proposed based upon continuum plasticity theory and elasto-plasticity finite element (FE) analysis, in which both relaxation of shot peening induced residual stress and variation of yield strength in the surface layer were taken into consideration. The results show that the value of yield strength in surface layer is altered after shot peening, and the relaxation of residual stress takes place at the point where the combination of applied strain and residual strain exceeds the true value of yield strength. A fundamental agreement was proved between measurements and predictions in simple tension and compression.
