INTRODUCTION The force exerted by a shot stream must always generate some degree of component bending. This bending may be so small as to be insignificant—as is the case with ‘thick’ components. With ‘thin’ components, however, component bending always induces an element of stress peening. The degree of bending depends on three factors: Magnitude of applied force, F, Thickness of component, t, and Distance between supports, L.
