ABSTRACT Many investigations have been done to provide an overall insight into the shot-peening mechanism. But reviewing most of the existing works in this area reveals a number of shortcomings. This is probably due to the sheer mechanical approach of studying such problems. On the other hand, since many parameters affect shot-peening, it must be considered as a complex system. Thus some other procedures must be applied in analyzing such a system. Information based solutions are among the suitable approaches which can be used along with mechanical procedures. This new solution does not definitely lead us to get an overall perception of the shot-peening mechanism; however, it opens new outlines in which recent results are incorporated. In this paper, a new approach is tried to be proposed to consider problems of understanding shot-peening mechanism.
