ICSP-14 is the 14th International Conference on Shot Peening.
Held every three years, it’s one of the calendar’s most important events on the science, technology and applications of mechanical surface treatments. It offers a unique forum for scientists and engineers to deepen and update their knowledge on all aspects of mechanical surface treatments.
International representatives from academia and industry will come together to present and discuss the latest developments in shot peening and related subjects.
Our Scientific Committee members come from academic institutions and industrial organizations, as part of our commitment to promoting multidisciplinary cooperation and exchange.
The conference is a unique opportunity for researchers and industry representatives to present their scientific and technological developments on shot peening and surface treatments. Come and meet highly proficient people from all over the world, for a chance to debate and exchange new ideas with experts in the field.
The urgent challenges of today’s global society make knowledge of shot peening’s benefits and applications crucial for designers. As global focus on energy saving and low emission products grows, stronger, lighter and smaller metal components are a critical design challenge: shot peening is the key to satisfying the ever-stronger requirements in these high-tech fields.
From fatigue and fracture, modeling and simulation, to related and alternative surface treatments, ICSP-14 will cover a wide range of relevant topics for conventional and (the more recent) additive manufacturing technology.
Shot peening and related mechanical surface treatments are powerful tools for enhancing the resistance of load-bearing components to various kinds of stress-induced damage, particularly with respect to fatigue and corrosion damage. The practical benefits of mechanical surface treatments are widely recognized in all fields, especially the automotive and aerospace industries.
New possible applications of shot peening will be also presented, paving the way for new markets for the treatment.
The conference is also an ideal opportunity to discover Milan, a truly international city, renowned for fashion, good food and a rich cultural and historical heritage.
