On the Peen-Forming of Metals

  • W. Johnson
  • A. G. Mamalis
  • S. K. Ghosh


Strips of various metals have been peen-formed and various aspects of the peen-forming process are outlined. The beneficial effects of the shot-size and the materials used are discussed.Some applications of the process to various parts (i.e. plates and thin-wall tubes) are given. Published work on the subject is reviewed.
