Summary

The present investigation has been made as part of an ongoing study into the effects of CSP. Aluminium alloy 2024 T351 is commonly used within the aerospace industry, and is routinely shot peened as part of the manufacturing process. To determine the effects of CSP on the corrosion fatigue behaviour of this alloy, a series of tests were performed. Initially, corrosion fatigue tests were conducted on both unpeened and peened specimens. Electrochemical testing was then undertaken, firstly, to investigate if the shot peening would change the characteristics of the material, and secondly, to help with the interpretation of the corrosion fatigue results.
