It is known that shot-peening increases the fatigue strength of a material as it leads to residual compressive stresses in the surface and subsequently increases the resistance to crack initiation and growth. My question is, does shot-peening affect the resistance to static stresses too? or not since it affects only the surface of the specimen?
