Development of a massively parallel nanoscale laser shock peening process
MetadataShow full item record
In this report, the feasibility of a massively parallel, nanoscale laser shock peening process is investigated. This report will give a fundamental background on laser shock peening processes in general. The background will include a description of the mechanisms associated with laser shock peening, and the theory behind laser shock peening. The experiments that were performed to develop a nanoscale laser shock peening process will also be described in detail. The problems associated with different experiments and the results will be presented.
