    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.6, No.1, pp. 1-16, 2010, DOI:10.3970/sdhm.2010.006.001
    Abstract This work investigates the possibility to perform Water Jet Peening (WJP) by means of a standard Water Jet (WJ) cutting plant. The experimentation is carried out on 39NiCrMo3 specimens with the aim to find out the best working conditions of two different methods: the "in air WJP" and the "submerged WJP". Comparisons between the two methods and to previous experimentations in the reference literature are also presented. More >

    Abstract Coating deposition processes such as cold spraying are commonly employed to increase wear and fatigue resistance and consequently to enhance longevity of engineering components. Such processes typically introduce residual stresses into the coated surface, which in turn affect efficiency of coatings and play an important role in coating durability. In fact residual stresses are the key parameter to obtain compact and well-adherent coatings. They can modify several coating properties such as adhesion, structure, toughness, hardness reflecting on the macroscopic chemical and mechanical behavior of the coating.
    Present study describes alteration of residual stress state of two types of aluminum coatings… More >

    Assessment of Severe Shot Peening on Surface Characteristics of Al Alloys

    M. Guagliano1,2, S. Bagherifard2, I. Fernandez Parienete3, R. Ghelichi2
    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.6, No.1, pp. 31-42, 2010, DOI:10.3970/sdhm.2010.006.031
    Abstract Surface grain refinement is a relatively new process aimed to enhance mechanical material properties. In this study Al7075-T6 bars have been shot peened with parameters (shot speed and treatment duration) much stronger from those of conventional shot peening (SP). Residual stress state and microstructure gradient have been observed by means of transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and nano indentation tester. Formation of a fine grained layer of material on top surface of the specimens was confirmed by TEM and also XRD measurements. XRD results show significant depth affected both in terms of residual stress and full width half… More >

    Fatigue Resistance and Cracking Mechanisms in an Aircraft AISI 4340 Steel with Surface Affected by Electro-Erosive and Water Jet Cutting

    I. Černý1,2, D. Mikulová1
    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.6, No.1, pp. 43-52, 2010, DOI:10.3970/sdhm.2010.006.043
    Abstract Alternative methods of material machining like electro-erosive or water jet cutting, respectively, represent modern technologies, which are perspective to be used as final end-to-shape operations due to their possibilities of automatization and cutting precision. The paper contains results of an investigation of resistance of an aircraft AISI 4340 steel against fatigue loading performed using specimens loaded by three point bending at ambient temperature and standard laboratory conditions. Results of fatigue tests of specimens with surface after electro-erosive and water jet cutting, respectively, are presented, whereas in the latter case, areas of water jet incidence and outfall are studied separately.
