Determination of shot peening effect on fatigue behavior of AISI 4140 steel by non-destructive measurement of surface residual stresses

Çalışkan, Salim
The fatigue performance of aircraft parts can be improved by inducing compressive residual stresses in the near-surface zone by shot-peening. The depth profile and the magnitude of residual stresses depend on the shot peening parameters. Aircraft industry requires an easy and rapid non-destructive method for determination of residual stress state to verify the achievement of the desired results of shot-peening. This study aims to determine nondestructively the residual stresses at the surface by the Magnetic Barkhausen Noise (MBN) method, and also, to investigate the effect of the shot peening severity on the fatigue life of AISI 4140 steel. By this way, it might be possible to correlate the MBN measurement results with fatigue life and to verify nondestructively the success of shot-peening process to achieve the desired fatigue life.

Kaleli, Tuğçe; Gür, Cemil Hakan; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2017)
Industrial performance of the carburized steels is mainly dependent on the residual stress state in the carburized layer that is controlled by the process parameters such as carburizing temperature and time. Non-destructive evaluation of the material properties and residual stress state has been gained importance for industrial applications due to its advantages such as measurement speed and complete control possibility of the components by automation. The aim of this thesis is to investigate the efficiency...

Residual stress state on the surface layers has a critical effect on the service performance and fatigue life of the carburized components. Non-destructive determination of residual stress state in a rapid and reliable way has being gained importance for industrial applications. The aim of this study is to investigate the efficiency of the magnetic Barkhausen noise (MBN) method for monitoring the residual stress variations as a function of carburizing process parameters. For this purpose, MBN and XRD measur...
An enhanced analytical model for residual stress prediction in machining
Lazoglu, I.; Ulutan, D.; Alaca, B. E.; Engin, S.; Kaftanoglu, B. (2008-01-01)
The predictions of residual stresses are most critical on the machined aerospace components for the safety of the aircraft. In this paper, an enhanced analytic elasto-plastic model is presented using the superposition of thermal and mechanical stresses on the workpiece, followed by a relaxation procedure. Theoretical residual stress predictions are verified experimentally with X-ray diffraction measurements on the high strength engineering material of Waspaloy that is used critical parts such as in aircraft...
Enhancement of quality of modal test results of an unmanned aerial vehicle wing by implementing a multi-objective genetic algorithm optimization
Pedramasl, Nima; Şahin, Melin; ACAR, ERDEM (2017-12-01)
Due the fact that aircraft structures work in an environment with lots of dynamic forces, it is of vital importance to perform a dynamic analysis to understand dynamic characteristics of aircraft in that specific environment. These characteristics are usually obtained using numerical methods (finite element analysis) or experimental methods (classical modal analysis). In classical modal analysis, quality of test equipment plays a critical role in final results' accuracy and completeness. There is another im...
