Introduction: Depending on the target material ductility, peening parameters and component geometry, coverage evaluation can be very subjective. I.e.: when peening a very hard target material, after a first peening operation and using fine and light shot with low intensity. Mathematical models for Almen intensity and surface coverage determination [1], are now adopted in the SAE standards. Computer calculation programs have been proposed. Beyond simple calculation, a full computer mastering of a flat component surface coverage process is here produced.
