TL;DR: In this article, a general methodology is proposed for the determination of surface residual stresses and residual plastic strains using instrumented sharp indentation, which is assumed to be equibiaxial and uniform over a depth (beneath the indented surface) which is at least several times larger than the indentation contact diameter, and the indenter load and geometry can be so chosen as to minimize or maximize the contact radius to seek the broadest range of applicability and validity of the proposed method by recourse to macro-, micro- and nanoindentation of elastoplastic

TL;DR: In this article, the role of laser shock processing (LSP) on the cyclic properties of A356, Al12Si and 7075 aluminium alloys was evaluated, and major contributors to the fatigue performance improvements were investigated in order to determine the optimum shock conditions.
Abstract: Subjecting target metallic samples to a very short pulse (about 20 ns) of intense (GW cm−2) laser light generates, through a surface plasma, a high-pressure stress wave propagating to the first millimetre in depth, which is commonly called laser shock processing (LSP). The purpose of this work was to evaluate the role of this novel process on the cyclic properties of A356, Al12Si and 7075 aluminium alloys. Major contributors to the fatigue performance improvements were investigated in order to determine the optimum shock conditions. These were mainly compressive residual stress (RS) levels for which a large range of incident shock conditions was performed. We showed that stress levels were very sensitive to the laser fluence and the number of local impacts, and experimental RS measurements were found to be in good agreement with analytical modelling results. In comparison, a conventional shot peening (SP) treatment was found to lead to higher surface hardening and RS levels, but with a very detrimental roughening not observed after LSP. High cycle (107) fatigue tests carried out on laser- processed, shot-peened and untreated notched samples illustrated the efficiency of LSP as a new, promising method to improve the fatigue limits σD of structures, especially in comparison with enhancements displayed by SP (+22% vs. +10%). According to crack detection electric measurements, fatigue performance improvements with LSP mainly occurred during the crack initiation stage.
