Abstract: Laser shock processing is an important surface treatment that induces compressive residual stress to components, where the coating plays an important role. This paper deduce a general formula of the optimum thickness of coating according to the law of energy conservation and analysis the influence of coating on residual stress of the titanium alloy in laser shock processing. Titanium alloy with black paint, silica acid black paint and without coating were shocked by laser system respectively. It was found that coating could increase shock pressure amplitude and laser density absorption. Compressive residual stresses at the surface of the sample with the black paint and silica acid black paint are about -212.2MPa and -264.2MPa respectively, while the surface stress on the uncoated specimen is very high tensile stress. The bare surface due to melting and vaporization, leads to a very rough surface. The depth of induced compressive stress could reduce stress corrosion cracking in titanium alloy and improve fatigue lifetime.

Abstract: Laser shot peen-forming of sheet metal(or LasershotSM Peening) is a new plastic forming technique for metallic materials, which uses high-power pulsed laser replacing the tiny balls to peen the surface of sheet metal. When the pressure of shock waves induced by laser impresses an inhomogeneous residual stresses distribution in a given depth on the surface of sheet, it responds to the stress by elongating at the peened surface and effectively bending the sheet. In order to investigate the mechanism of laser shot peen-forming, the narrow strip peen-forming experimental of aluminum alloy 6061-T6 was carried out by using a pulsed Nd:glass laser with 0.5Hz repetition-rate. Here, under some given laser energy, laser pulse width, laser beam diameter and pulse repetition frequency and so on, the influence of shot strip interval and shot times on surface residual stresses and the deformation of the sheet is analyzed. The results show that the bending forming of the sheet metal can be found, and the peened surface of sheet metal becomes convex. That the bending increases with shot strip interval increase is not obvious, but it increases with the shot times increase in a proper range of shot times. Besides, because laser shot peen-forming generates compressive residual stresses on the surface, it offers many desirable characteristics in shaped metals and is a valuable technique for producing components for a range of industries.

Abstract: Residual stresses of model S1100 of crankshaft chamfer were measured by the technology of XRD. The distributions of residual stresses under mechanical peening, mechanical rolling and isothermal quenching are measured, and the tests of fatigue life were conducted. The results showed that the distribution of residual stress by machining in the crankshaft chamfer is complicated, which is at the tensile-compressive status, and it is one of the main factors to affect fatigue life of the crankshaft; isothermal quenching improves the distribution of residual stress, and tensile stress of the crankshaft chamfer is changed into the compressive stress, which may satisfy the requests of fatigue testing for 5 × 106 cycles. Although the mechanical rolling improved the residual stress distribution in the chamfer linked with the crank, tensile stresses in the chamfer connected with the linkage also increase, which influences the service life of the crankshaft.

Abstract: Laser shock processing (LSP) employs high-energy laser pulses from a solid-state laser system to create intense shock waves into a material, which can induce compressive residual stresses in the target surface and improve its mechanical property efficiency. Residual stress of Ti6Al4V alloy both before and after LSP with multishocks was analysised. The depth of compressive residual stress was found to have a dependence on the number of shocking layers and a slight dependence on the level of irradiance. Surface stress improvements of more than 50% increases are possible after laser shock processing with either large spot or small spot patterns. The large spot gave a surface stress of 432MPa and a depth of over 1mm. The low intensity small spot gave a surface stress of 285MPa with a depth comparable to the large spot. Laser shock processing induces a compressive residual stress field, which increases fatigue crack initiation life and reduces fatigue crack growth rate.

Abstract: Laser peen forming of sheet metal is a new plastic forming technique based on laser shock waves, which derives from the combination of laser shock processing and conventional shot peening technique, it uses high-power pulsed laser replacing the tiny balls to peen the surface of sheet metal, when the laser induced peak pressure of shock waves exceeds the dynamic yield strength of the materials, the sheet metal yields, resulting in an inhomogeneous residual stresses distribution in depth. The sheet metal responds to this residual stress by elongating at the peened surface and effectively bending the overall shape. On the basis of analyzing the mechanism of laser peen forming, the line-track-peening experiments of 45 steel sheets with 2 mm thickness were carried out; a curved sheet metal with deep layer of residual compressive stress was obtained. The preliminary experiment result shows that laser peen forming can offer desirable characteristics in shaped metals and is a valuable technique for producing components for a range of industries.
