Purpose

This specification covers the requirements for computer-controlled laser peening of metal part surfaces to induce residual compressive stresses at and beneath the surface.

Application

Laser peening is utilized to induce compressive residual stresses at and beneath the surface of metal parts to depths of 0.040 inch (1 mm) and greater depending on the metal properties and the laser peening processing parameters. These residual stresses can provide improved fatigue life and stress corrosion resistance as well as forming and correction of distortion, although usage is not limited to such applications.

Safety-Hazardous Materials

While the materials, methods, applications, and processes described or referenced in this specification may involve the use of hazardous materials, this specification does not address the hazards which may be involved in such use. It is the sole responsibility of the user to ensure familiarity with the safe and proper use of any hazardous materials and to take necessary precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel involved.
