Summary Shot peening has been proved to be a powerful instrument in enhancing the resistance of materials to various kinds of stress-induced damage, particularly against damage due to cyclic loading (fatigue) in air or in aggressive environments. As shot peening can be used for a wide variety of structural components irrespective of shape and dimensions, the number of shot peening applications in many industrial branches is increasing. The use of peen forming as a technique to form large metal parts into complicated shapes is also increasing, particularly in the aerospace industry. The Conference cove
