The Eleventh International Conference on Shot Peening (ICSP-11) will be held September 12-15, 2011 in South Bend, IN. ICSP-11 is a triennial conference and exhibition of the International Scientific Committee for 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, largely 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 recognized, particularly in the automotive and aerospace industries.
ICSP-11 will be an important international 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. The conference 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.
