Abstract Cavitation peening is a peening method using impacts at cavitation bubble collapses generated by a cavitating jet. In order to introduce compressive residual stress avoiding damage on the peened surface, residual stress of stainless steel was investigated at various cavitating conditions. It was revealed that the large cavitating jet at low injection pressure such as 30 MPa can introduce larger compressive residual stress into deeper region comparing of small cavitating jet at high injection pressure such as 300 MPa. Keywords Residual stress, Cavitation, Jet, Stainless steel.
