Experiment and Simulation of TC4 Alloy Rods Subject to Laser Shock Processing
In order to improve the fatigue strength of TC4, Nd:Glass pulse laser was used to impact the surface of cylindrical specimens, X-ray stress analyzer was used to test the residual stress distribution of treated area, the laser shock processing on different ratio (η) between the diameter of specimens and laser spot were simulated with ANSYS at the same time. The numerical simulation results were well agreement with experimental data. The results indicate that the different η mainly affect residual stress distribution along the circumferential direction. Contrarily, it has few effects on longitudinal direction and in-depth direction.
