General Information

The Eleventh International Conference on Shot Peening, hosted by Electronics Inc. and The Shot Peener Magazine, was held September 12-15, 2011, in South Bend, Indiana, USA.

ICSP-11 Proceedings, edited by Jack Champaigne are available for purchase for $250. These will be available for three years, after which the individual manuscripts will be available for download at the shotpeener.com Library.

ICSP-11 was the 11th triennial International Conference on Shot Peening. Related mechanical surface treatments – such as deep rolling, laser peening, ultrasonic peening, combined processes and other cold work processes inducing compressive surface residual stresses - were within the scope of the conference, especially when compared to shot peening. Shot Peening and related mechanical surface treatments have proved to be powerful instruments in enhancing the resistance of components to various kinds of stress-induced damage, particularly with respect to fatigue and corrosion damage. The service lives of a wide variety of structural components, irrespective of shape and dimensions, can be improved dramatically by shot peening. The commercial benefits of applying mechanical surface treatments are increasingly recognised, especially in the automotive and aerospace industries.

The study of shot peening's benefits and uses are crucial as the need grows for stronger and lighter metal components in transportation, medical and many other applications.

An exhibition of products and services related to the topics of the conference was located in the Century Center Convention Center in conjunction with the conference. See the exhibition pages for more information.
