Two coupon test programs were recently carried out at the National Research Council of Canada to certify shot peening and fastener modifications that aim at extending the lives of military aircraft components that are short of their revised usage goals. The life improvement associated with each modification was experimentally quantified by comparing the lives resulting from variants of each modification with that of pre-modification baseline configurations. This approach allowed determining the effects of several parameters, such as the applied stress level, geometric configuration, and modification specifications, on the life extension.
