Shot Peening Modelling in DEFORM V12.0 | DEFORM News

September 26th, 2019

SFTC recently took part in a research project to develop modelling methods for shot peening processes.

A deliverable from this work was the new Shot Peening Template, which streamlines the setup and simulation of this complicated process. Shot peening is a beneficial surface treatment used in a wide range of industries. It induces a compressive residual stress on the surface of a metal component via cold working. This is accomplished by firing spherical shot onto a part at high velocity. The resulting compressive stress state counteracts tensile stresses experienced during in-service operation. This can greatly increase a part’s fatigue resistance.
