It is easy to apply shot peening on steel, aluminum, titanium, nickel base alloys and some ceramics. For the components which need high cyclic fatigue and strength, such as springs, gears, camshafts, crankshafts and turbine blades shot peening is a crucial step in the production. Barkhausen noise analysis could be used to show the difference between a shot peened and not peened residual stress depth profile. Barkhausen noise method could be utilized as an automated inspection method to separate shot peened and not shot peened parts non- destructively. In relatively soft steels, the Barkhausen
Stresstech, a Nova Instruments company workpiece related. The paper describes the equipment related parameters as coverage, impact angle, peening time, shot velocity workpiece parameters as geometry, hardness, temperature and shot related parameters as shape, size, mass, and so forth.  Another example of shot peening stresses is given above. In this example, the residual stress depth profiles are created by Prism equipment which works with a technology based on a combination of traditional hole drilling and ESPI methods. In traditional hole drilling, by removing a volume of material, the stress equilibrium is changed. Moreover, the remaining material re-balances its stress fields, and this relaxation and surface distortions are measured as changes in electrical resistance.
