Shot peening increases not only the mechanical abilities of metallic items but their thermodynamic properties as well. This knowledge and the research results are very improtant to designers and caldulators of heat exchangers, boilers and other heating and cooling units. Of course, it is necessary to take into consideration a complete cost of the final product, since the heat transfer from one fluid to another over a bundle of different types of tubes is a very important surface. With shot peening on the inside-outside tube surface the surfaces important for heat exchange can be increased and consequently conductivity evidently changed. To this scope lots of testing, measurements, comparing, controlling and approvals of different thermic coefficients are necessary.
