Abstract

The effects of laser shock peening (LSP) treatment with different impacts on surface roughness, micro-hardness, microstructural observations, residual stress, and electrochemical corrosion resistance of IN718 superalloy were investigated. Results show that the corrosion potential increases to 0.4863  V, 0.2956  V, and 0.3578  V, and the corrosion rate reduces 66.10%, 79.08%, and 84.07% for 2 LSP impacts, 4 LSP impacts, and 6 LSP impacts, respectively, compared with the untreated one. In addition, LSP treatment has an important influence on grain refinement, which increases micro-hardness, reduces roughness of a surface, and also results in a compressive residual stress on a surface, both of which can be responsible for the electrochemical corrosion improvement. Finally, corrosion morphology under scanning electron microscopy demonstrates that LSP is an effective method to prevent the corrosion micro-crack propagation and improve the corrosion resistance. Also, with an increase in laser impacts, the electrochemical corrosion resistance will be further improved.
