Paper Abstract

An excimer laser source was used for shock treatment of metals. The treated specimens were materials applied in automotive and aeronautical industry. The process was investigated with physical methods and optimized in terms of high surface pressures. The results of the shock treatment concerns the modifications of the mechanical properties such as roughness, hardness and residual stresses.
