CRC Press has released Laser Shock Peening: Performance and Process Simulation by K. Ding and L. Ye. This 162-page book consolidates the scattered knowledge on laser shock peening (LSP) into a single comprehensive volume. It describes the mechanisms of LSP and its substantial role in improving fatigue performance. It also features numerical simulation techniques and procedures that can help in the design, evaluation and optimization of LSP processes in practical applications.
