A brief historical summary is presented of the root sources of shot peening (mechanical prestressing), with reference to development of the technology from needs of the military, scientific and industrial communities. Chronology of the development shows that the earliest investigations were probably inspired by military requirements, closely paralleled by correlation of tests for hardness and metallurgical response, culminating in the present industrial technology to improve properties of metals.
