ABSTRACT Aerospace operators are always looking at methods of reducing the down time of their components while ensuring a high level of control and safety in their maintenance operations. Until recently, shot peening of components while fully assembled on the aerospace (aircraft/helicopter) has resulted in a process that was either lacking in control or that created a very high risk of foreign object damage (FOD). We will show the potential interest by using ultrasonic technology for reducing maintenance cost and increase fatigue life.
