This specification covers procedures and requirements for peening of metal parts with portable, bonded-shot, rotary flap assemblies in accordance with AS2592. The principles of rotary flap peening are similar to conventional shot peening, except conversion of arc height values using the magnetic Almen test strip holder is required for intensity determination.
Rationale: This is a new specification that provides technical improvements to MIL-R-81841 in these areas: (1) two methods for determination of intensity independent of peening time, (2) improved operator qualification requirements, (3) more effective methods for determination of peening time, and (4) simplified calculation of required tool speeds within holes.
