Article Preview

A numerical analysis of Laser Shock Peening (LSP) process is illustrated, applied to an open hole specimen. This specimen is representative of a section of an aircraft fuselage lap joint, typically prone to fatigue crack nucleation at the rivet holes. The effect of the residual stress field induced by LSP on the fatigue life of open hole specimens is investigated. The results show that significant compressive residual stresses can be introduced in fatigue sensitive areas using LSP, postponing fatigue crack nucleation.
