    This paper briefly reviews the applications of shotpeening for strengthening and for forming metals. Current methods of specification are reviewed and analyzed. An extension of these methods is proposed to obtain “ equivalent intensities” which correlate the several variables and provide more flexibility in applying the treatment. Adoption of equivalent intensities would avoid delays in the production of shotpeened parts made of various materials.
