Finite Element Simulation of the Residual Stress States after Shot Peening


Article Preview

In a three-dimensional Finite-Element-Simulation of shot peening, a combined isotropickinematic viscoplastic material description was introduced in order to describe the cyclic softening effects during peening. After verifying the model in the simulation of push-pull tests at different strain amplitudes it could be used for the shot peening simulation. The simulated residual stress profile is compared with experimental results determined by X-ray diffraction and with simulated results of a simpler isotropic viscoplastic material model.
