Reprinted with permission from Proceedings of ICSP5. ABSTRACT A simplified treatment of the theoretical basis of coverage control is presented based on the application of an Avrami equation. This application shows how coverage progresses during shot peening with a necessary exponential approach to 100%. The effects of varying the common shot peening parameters - shot size, peening rate and exposure time are analyzed.
