This specification establishes the engineering requirements for computer monitored peening of parts surfaces. This procedure has been used typically to induce, through cold working, a surface layer that is residually stresses in compression, thereby enhancing fatigue performance and resistance to stress-corrosion cracking, corrosion fatigue, fretting fatigue, spalling, and galling and to provide a means by which the shot peening process can be repeatedly performed on parts which rely on the benefits provided by shot peening in order to satisfy material component design, but usage is not limited to such applications.
