Numerical modeling approaches have been developed for simulating shot peening processes and consideration of compressive residual stresses when performing strength calculations of turbine wheel joints.

A three-stage method is presented to combine strength analyses of turbine blade with the output of LS-DYNA simulations (RS diagrams) of multiple impacts. Predictions of RS distributions obtained using the suggested approach are compared with experimental data and good correlation was achieved. The effect of the RS diagrams obtained using various SP parameters on the stress-strain state of the turbine blade root and the values of its cyclic durability are estimated.
