Özet

As an important surface treatment method, shot peening (SP) is widely used in automotive and aerospace industries in order to improve surface properties. In the present study SP was performed on the a-fl titanium alloy Ti6A14V under various parameters (particle impingement angle, particle acceleration pressure and particle size) by using a specially designed shot peening test rig. It is aimed to optimize surface roughness and hardness of the shot peened Ti6A14V alloy under various parameters. In order to achieve this goal shot peened samples were investigated in detail by using a non-contact laser optical profilometer and surface hardness of the samples was measured by using a micro-hardness instrument. The surface roughness values, 3D surface morphologies and micro-hardness of the samples were obtained and examined. The results show that particle impingement angle, particle acceleration pressure and particle size dramatically affect the surface properties of the Ti6A14V alloy.
