Shot peening for the fatigue strength improvement of aircraft components by residual compressive stresses was investigated to optimize shot peening for three high-strength materials under constant amplitude loads. The possible fatigue life increases by using the optimized methods in realistic load sequences and the changes in residual stress during realistic load sequences were also determined. The studies were made using AZ74.61 (A1ZnMgCuAg, German aircraft material designation 3.4354.7, a Ag-bearing A1 alloy, Ti--6A1--6V--2Sn (3.7174.1) and X2NiCoMo18/9/5 (1.6354.9), a maraging steel.
