In the analysis of the thermomechanical behaviour of the target material subject to Laser Shock Processing (LSP), most of the simplified models used for the analysis of its residual shocked state rely on rather simple estimations or material response equations that rarely take into account a detailed description of the material subject to a simultaneous dynamic compression and either deformation-induced or plasma-driven thermal heating. The calculational system developed by the authors (SHOCKLAS) includes a coupled analysis of the pressure wave applied to the target material as a result of the plasma buildup following laser interaction and the shock wave propagation into the solid material with specific consideration of the material response to thermal and mechanical alterations induced by the propagating wave itself (i.e. effects as elastic-plastic deformation, changes in elastic constants, etc.). The model is applicable to the typical behaviour shown by the different materials through their dynamic strain-stress relations. In the present paper, the key features and several typical results of the developed SHOCKLAS calculational system are presented. In particular, the application of the model to the realistic simulation (full 3D dependence, non linear material behaviour, thermal and mechanical effects, treatment over extended surfaces) of LSP treatments in the experimental conditions of the irradiation facility used by the authors is presented
