Abstract: Specimens of 2024-T351 aluminium alloy under different three shot peening intensities were studied. The modifications of the surface layers of the shot peened specimens were investigated through microhardness, surface microstructure and residual stress relaxation after the first and second load cycles under two cyclic loads. No significant changes in microstructure after the three shot peeing intensities were observed with respect to untreated specimens. Rapid residual stress relaxation was observed in specimens after the first cycle. Relaxation of residual stresses occurred within first loading cycles were increased with increasing loading stress amplitude and due to quasi-static relaxation effects.

Abstract: The Navarro-Rios micromechanical model was used to assess the bounds of two different damage zones: crack arrest region and crack propagation region of controlled shot peening (CSP) of high strength aluminium alloys. Performance of CSP in terms of fatigue resistance was investigated. This comparison indicated that CSP in terms of fatigue depends on the competition between its beneficial and detrimental products, i.e. surface roughness and compressive residual stresses respectively. The gathered information can be used for safe load determinations in design.
