Bosshard, ANVIL Developments, Volketswil, Switzerland Introduction There are many parameters involved in shot peening. Among them are: The shot speed, the size, shape, nature and hardness of shot, projection angle and exposure time. This multiplicity of parameters makes the precise conrtrol and repeatability of a shot peening operation very problematical. For this purpose, research was carried out to develop a more comprehensive and easier method of controlling these parameters. Present investigation gives a detailed discussion of the development of various methods of controlling shot peening parameters and proposes also a promising method which is called "Interactive Almen Round Method".
