9th International Conference and Exhibition on
Shot Peening

September 6-9, 2005 , Paris, Marne la Vallée, France

Organiser : Institute for Industrial Technology Transfer, www.iitt.com



Aims and Scope

ICSP9 will be the 9th 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 - are 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.
ICSP9 will be the most important worldwide meeting for discussing the science, technology and applications of mechanical surface treatments. It will offer a unique forum, enabling scientists and engineers to deepen and update their knowledge of all aspects of mechanical surface treatments.
ICSP9 will cover a range of surface treatment topics based on: technological aspects, process procedures, changes in the surface state, process simulation, service properties and fields of application.
